Rodong Sinmun:U.S.-R.O.K. War exercises Flayed -KCNA

Rodong Sinmun:U.S.-R.O.K. War exercises Flayed

Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) -- The puppet warmongers of south Korea staged a large-scale joint air rehearsal in the sky above the west of the Korean Peninsula from May 23 to 27 together with the U.S. air forces in south Korea.

Involved in this anti-DPRK rehearsal were more than 50 aerial warplanes and nuclear preemptive attack means.

Commenting on this fact, a news analyst of Rodong Sinmun Sunday says:

The rehearsal was very provocative and dangerous in content and nature as it was conducted in way of setting up "enemy formations" and then "repelling" someone's "provocation for overall war" with big offensive formations and dropping strategic bombs on main ground targets.

It was a vivid expression of the scheme to mount preemptive attack on the DPRK and a reckless military provocation aimed to escalate the tension on the peninsula and spark off a war of aggression on the DPRK.

The puppet forces are now escalating grave military provocation to the DPRK as never before in the West Sea of Korea under the signboard of "threat from the north" and staging almost every day anti-DPRK war games in the western area of the Military Demarcation Line.

Especially, naval firing exercises and war confabs against the DPRK are going on one after another in and around the five islands in the territorial waters of the DPRK on the West Sea of Korea. And big south Korea-U.S. joint marines rehearsal is to be staged around Paekryong Island in July for the first time of its kind.

The puppet forces have recently got hell-bent on setting up of trial "command for defense of northwest islands", calling for "defense reform" the keynote of which is to "strengthen joint action" of the three services and the marine corps. Accordingly, the madcap war games in the western region are a blatant challenge and provocation to the DPRK which is making every possible effort for the improvement of the north-south relations and peace of the country.

We love peace, but will mete out merciless and strong punishment to those seeking do harm to it. We never make an empty talk.

Rodong Sinmun:Enhanced role of Progressive information urged -KCNA

Rodong Sinmun:Enhanced role of Progressive information urged

Pyongyang, May 26 (KCNA) -- The imperialists are now hell-bent on massively spreading the reactionary ideology and culture and misinformation by communication means in accordance with their demand and interests.

In this regard Rodong Sinmun Thursday says in a bylined article;

This reality urgently requires the developing countries to rapidly develop the field of information in order to enhance the role of the progressive information.

The non-aligned information should be a fair judge of history defending justice and attacking injustice.

The imperialists spread the bourgeois "view of value", culture and way of life over other countries with reliance on the outdated international information order and their superiority in the field of information technology. They also set afloat distorted information to foment social disorder and incite overthrow of system in the progressive countries.

They are intensifying the reactionary propaganda offensive by dint of modern information means in a bid to contain the countries aspiring after independence against imperialism and their rivals.

Through information activities non-aligned and other developing countries should widely introduce the just struggle of the peoples for sovereignty, independence and social progress and lift up the voices of international solidarity with it. They should also disclose and condemn all sorts of domination and interference, aggression and war moves that violate freedom and rights of human being and the sovereignty of countries and nations and threaten and wreck the peace of the world.

It is important to promote international exchange and cooperation in the field of information if those countries are to develop the information service and enhance its role.

To boost the exchange and cooperation in the information field is a sure guarantee for developing the information service of the developing countries and lifting up the world progressives' voice of justice.

U.S. Agressor's burial of defoliant branded as hideous crime _KCNA

U.S. Agressor's burial of defoliant branded as hideous crime

Pyongyang, May 26 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea issued information bulletin No. 972 on Thursday as regards the recently disclosed fact that the U.S. imperialist aggressors present in south Korea buried a huge amount of defoliant in U.S. forces bases in secrecy.

The information bulletin branded the above-said acts as the unpardonable criminal acts to savagely destroy the inviolable territory of Korea and turn the cradle of the Korean nation into a barren land in a bid to exterminate it

The U.S. has regarded the land of south Korea as no more than a colonial dumping ground which it can trample down and where it can throw poisonous materials as it pleases and the south Korean people as no more than colonial slaves whom it never cares whether they are dead or alive, the information bulletin noted, and went on:.

The reality goes to clearly prove that the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces are the herd of ferocious barbarians who leave no stone unturned to attain their purpose and neither the living of the south Koreans nor the existence of the Korean nation is thinkable as long as the U.S. imperialist occupation forces stay in south Korea.

The Lee Myung Bak group is working hard to force the nation to fall victim to outside forces' policy of a war of aggression, while more shamelessly kowtowing to the U.S.

The Korean people will never pardon the U.S. imperialists and the group of traitors for their criminal acts to besmirch the inviolable cradle for all Koreans and the generations to come and exterminate the nation.

4 senators win promise of a Patriot Act hearing

4 senators win promise of a Patriot Act hearing*

Associated Press

May 26, 2011

WASHINGTON – Four Democratic senators won the promise Thursday of a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing into what they say is a secret and expansive Justice Department interpretation of the information collection the Patriot Act allows.

The criticism by Intelligence Committee members Ron Wyden of Oregon and Mark Udall of Colorado came as Congress moved to extend the government's Patriot Act powers to search records and conduct roving wiretaps.

Wyden said there is a growing gap between what the law says and what the senators call a classified interpretation of the law by the Justice Department.

Udall said his constituents "would be alarmed if they knew" how the Patriot Act was being carried out.

Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon complained that "the government won't even tell the American people how it interprets these provisions, or whether it sees any limits on its authority at all." Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico said almost 10 years after the Patriot Act's passage, "we still haven't had the debate that we need to have on this piece of legislation." All four senators voted against the Patriot Act extension. Merkley and Tom Udall are not on the intelligence committee.

The four senators proposed an amendment that would require Attorney General Eric Holder to file a public report on the legal rationale for intelligence collection activities. Wyden vowed to offer the amendment in the fall "if we don't get results" through the hearing process.

The wording of the amendment seemed to suggest that Wyden and Udall have been concerned about the issue since Feb. 2, when the intelligence committees on the Hill received a secret report from the attorney general and the director of national intelligence. The amendment says that the attorney general must publish in the Federal Register the legal basis for the intelligence collection activities described in the Feb. 2 report.

On the Senate floor, Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein said she intends to call a hearing with intelligence agencies, senior policymakers and the Justice Department after the Memorial Day break and to make changes "if changes are needed." The hearing will be closed to the public.

At the Justice Department, spokesman Dean Boyd said the department has "gone to great lengths to ensure that the public's elected representatives are fully informed of the ways in which we interpret and use these authorities."

Boyd said the provisions of the Patriot Act are subject to extensive oversight by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, by Congress and the executive branch.

"We have made available detailed information on the use of these Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act authorities to members of the Senate and the House and we have participated in numerous hearings, both classified and open, with relevant congressional committees," Boyd added.

US Senate renews anti-terror power

US Senate renews anti-terror powers*

26 May 2011

WASHINGTON (AFP) — The US Senate voted Thursday to extend until 2015 controversial counter-terrorism search and surveillance powers at the heart of the Patriot Act adopted after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Lawmakers adopted the measure 72-23 just hours before it expires at midnight (0400 GMT Friday), sending the bill to the House of Representatives. Voting in the House was not expected until 8:00 pm (0000 GMT), according to a congressional aide.
With the clock ticking, President Barack Obama -- currently on a European tour -- would also have to sign the act for it to pass into law.

FBI and intelligence officials have warned that if the Patriot Act is not extended by the deadline they would be robbed of crucial tools in the fight against terrorism -- including wiretapping.

"I have no doubt that the four-year Patriot Act extension, that members of both parties will agree to today, will safeguard us from future attacks," said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.

Congress has debated whether to extend the act just temporarily, longer-term or permanently in recent months. In February, Congress approved a three-month extension to allow time for negotiations.

In play are provisions allowing authorities to use roving wiretaps to track an individual on several telephones; track a non-US national suspected of being a "lone-wolf" terrorist not tied to an extremist group; and to seize personal or business records or "any tangible thing" seen as critical to an investigation.

While the White House backs extending those powers, the law has drawn fire from an unusual coalition of liberal Democrats and Republicans tied to the arch-conservative "Tea Party" movement who say it goes too far.

Republican conservative Rand Paul sought to impede the extension by adding on several amendments, including a ban on inspecting some archives of arms sellers during terror investigations. That measure was rejected in an 85-10 vote.

Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy called for greater congressional surveillance in counterterrorism inquiries.

FBI director Robert Mueller wrote to Congress leaders on Wednesday to warn them of the urgency of the matter.

"It is important that these tools be reauthorized without lapsing," Mueller wrote, opposing proposed amendments which he said "would adversely impact our operations."

"Certain amendments currently being proposed would impose unique limitations on our ability to investigate foreign spies and terrorists and protect Americans against foreign threats."


House approves Senate Patriot Act bill, sends to White House

House approves Senate Patriot Act bill, sends to White House*

By Pete Kasperowicz


The House on Thursday night approved the Senate version of the Patriot Act extension bill, a clean extension of three surveillance authorities until June 1, 2015.

The House finished voting at about 7:50 p.m., and approved the measure on a 250-153 vote. In the final vote, 54 Democrats voted for it, along with all but 31 Republicans.

The hastily arranged debate happened just minutes after the Senate approved the same bill by a 72-23 vote. With the House vote, the White House is expected to be able to approve it Thursday night with the help of an automated presidential signature, as President Obama is still in Europe.

House members rushed to approve the bill before three surveillance authorities expired at midnight, but spent some time debating it, even though the debate covered mostly familiar ground. Democrats generally opposed the bill, calling it something that would extend the government's invasion of privacy.

Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) said the death of Osama bin Laden in particular means the three authorities should be reconsidered.

"At a time like this, we should re-examine the restoration of our constitutional protections," he said. "This is the type of government intrusion which the Bill of Rights was designed to prevent."

The legislation would extend the ability of U.S. intelligence authorities to conduct roving wiretaps, gain access to business records and survey "lone-wolf" operators, non-U.S citizens believed to be acting alone to commit terrorist acts.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) argued Thursday night that there are problems with each of those authorities.

On roving wiretaps, he said officials do not have to identify the person being watched, which he said seems like a "clear violation of the Fourth Amendment," which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures. Regarding business records, he said the provision lets the government access records without having to show a "meaningful nexus" between the items gathered and terrorist activity.

And he questioned the importance of the lone-wolf provision, given government testimony that it has never been used. "According to government testimony, this provision has never been used, yet we are told it is vital that it remain on the books," he said.

Republicans, as they have in the past, rejected these arguments by saying the provisions adequately protect U.S. rights. "We need to ensure our security … and we also need to ensure our civil liberties, and I believe that measure does just that," House Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-Calif.) said.

"The terrorist threat will not sunset at midnight, and neither should our national security laws," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) added.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wis.) specifically defended the unused lone wolf provision by saying this authority might be used more in the future, especially in light of bin Laden's death.

"While the lone wolf provision has yet to be used, it is an important provision that recognizes the growing threat of individuals who may subscribe to radical or violent beliefs but do not clearly belong to a specific terrorist group," he said.

While Democrats said the death of bin Laden reduces the need for the Patriot Act authorities, Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) said bin Laden's death only happened because of the intelligence network the U.S. created in the days and weeks after 9/11.

"One of the lessons of our successful mission being executed against Osama bin Laden is that you need actionable intelligence over a long range of time that you can connect together with analysis to give you the information that you need," he said. "It doesn't fall from heaven. It doesn't come like manna. You have to go get it."

Congress votes to renew anti-terrorism steps

Congress votes to renew anti-terrorism steps*

By Thomas Ferraro

WASHINGTON, Thu May 26, 2011

(Reuters) - Congress, racing the clock and rejecting demands for additional safeguards of civil liberties, passed a bill Thursday to renew three expiring provisions of the anti-terrorism Patriot Act.

With the provisions set to expire at midnight Thursday (0400 GMT on Friday), the Republican-led House of Representatives approved the measure, 250-153, just hours after it cleared the Democratic-led Senate, 72-23.

President Barack Obama is traveling in Europe. White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said that he was prepared to use "the auto pen to sign" the bill quickly into law.

Democrats and some Republicans favored more protections of civil liberties in the legislation for law-abiding citizens.

But congressional leaders, facing the midnight deadline and possibly short on votes, agreed to a four-year, unaltered extension of the provisions to track suspected terrorists.

The provisions empower law enforcement officials to get court approval to obtain "roving wiretaps" on suspected foreign agents with multiple modes of communications, track noncitizen "lone wolves" suspected of terrorism, and obtain certain business and even library records.

"Although the Patriot Act is not a perfect law, it provides our intelligence and law enforcement communities with crucial tools to keep America safe," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.

"The raid that killed Osama bin Laden also yielded an enormous amount of new information that has spurred dozens of investigations yielding new leads every day," Reid said.

"Without the Patriot Act, investigators would not have the tools they need to follow these new leads and disrupt terrorist plots," Reid said.

The provisions are key parts of the Patriot Act, which was enacted after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. While backers say the provisions bolster U.S. security, critics say they could be abused and violate the rights of U.S. citizens.


Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, a liberal Democrat, and Republican Senator Rand Paul, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement, together offered steps to bolster oversight of the Patriot Act and increase civil-liberty liberty protections.

Their proposed changes cleared the Judiciary Committee, but Leahy and Paul were unable to bring them up for a vote by the full Senate.

Leahy said, "The extension of the Patriot Act provisions does not include a single improvement or reform, and includes not even a word that recognizes the importance of protecting the civil liberties and constitutional privacy rights of Americans."

But Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said, "The invaluable terror-fighting tools under the Patriot Act have kept us safe for nearly a decade, and Americans today should be relieved and reassured to know that these programs will continue."

The Senate had been tied up in procedural knots over the measure for days. It moved after a push from FBI Director Robert Mueller and National Intelligence chief James Clapper.

In letters to congressional leaders, Mueller and Clapper wrote that renewal of the provisions is vital to national security. Clapper said that if Congress allowed any lapse in the provisions, "even for the briefest of time, the nation will be less secure."

There’s a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says

There’s a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says*

By Spencer Ackerman
May 25, 2011

You think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden says it’s worse than you know.

Congress is set to reauthorize three controversial provisions of the surveillance law as early as Thursday. Wyden (D-Oregon) says that powers they grant the government on their face, the government applies a far broader legal interpretation — an interpretation that the government has conveniently classified, so it cannot be publicly assessed or challenged. But one prominent Patriot-watcher asserts that the secret interpretation empowers the government to deploy ”dragnets” for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.

“We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says,” Wyden told Danger Room in an interview in his Senate office. “When you’ve got that kind of a gap, you’re going to have a problem on your hands.”

What exactly does Wyden mean by that? As a member of the intelligence committee, he laments that he can’t precisely explain without disclosing classified information. But one component of the Patriot Act in particular gives him immense pause: the so-called “business-records provision,” which empowers the FBI to get businesses, medical offices, banks and other organizations to turn over any “tangible things” it deems relevant to a security investigation.

“It is fair to say that the business-records provision is a part of the Patriot Act that I am extremely interested in reforming,” Wyden says. “I know a fair amount about how it’s interpreted, and I am going to keep pushing, as I have, to get more information about how the Patriot Act is being interpreted declassified. I think the public has a right to public debate about it.”

That’s why Wyden and his colleague Sen. Mark Udall offered an amendment on Tuesday to the Patriot Act reauthorization.

The amendment, first reported by Marcy Wheeler, blasts the administration for “secretly reinterpret[ing] public laws and statutes.” It would compel the Attorney General to “publicly disclose the United States Government’s official interpretation of the USA Patriot Act.” And, intriguingly, it refers to “intelligence-collection authorities” embedded in the Patriot Act that the administration briefed the Senate about in February.

Wyden says he “can’t answer” any specific questions about how the government thinks it can use the Patriot Act. That would risk revealing classified information — something Wyden considers an abuse of government secrecy. He believes the techniques themselves should stay secret, but the rationale for using their legal use under Patriot ought to be disclosed.

“I draw a sharp line between the secret interpretation of the law, which I believe is a growing problem, and protecting operations and methods in the intelligence area, which have to be protected,” he says.

Surveillance under the business-records provisions has recently spiked. The Justice Department’s official disclosure on its use of the Patriot Act, delivered to Congress in April, reported that the government asked the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for approval to collect business records 96 times in 2010 — up from just 21 requests the year before. The court didn’t reject a single request. But it “modified” those requests 43 times, indicating to some Patriot-watchers that a broadening of the provision is underway.

“The FISA Court is a pretty permissive body, so that suggests something novel or particularly aggressive, not just in volume, but in the nature of the request,” says Michelle Richardson, the ACLU’s resident Patriot Act lobbyist. “No one has tipped their hand on this in the slightest. But we’ve come to the conclusion that this is some kind of bulk collection. It wouldn’t be surprising to me if it’s some kind of internet or communication-records dragnet.” (Full disclosure: My fiancée works for the ACLU.)

The FBI deferred comment on any secret interpretation of the Patriot Act to the Justice Department. The Justice Department said it wouldn’t have any comment beyond a bit of March congressional testimony from its top national security official, Todd Hinnen, who presented the type of material collected as far more individualized and specific: “driver’s license records, hotel records, car-rental records, apartment-leasing records, credit card records, and the like.”

But that’s not what Udall sees. He warned in a Tuesday statement about the government’s “unfettered” access to bulk citizen data, like “a cellphone company’s phone records.” In a Senate floor speech on Tuesday, Udall urged Congress to restrict the Patriot Act’s business-records seizures to “terrorism investigations” — something the ostensible counterterrorism measure has never required in its nearly 10-year existence.

Indeed, Hinnen allowed himself an out in his March testimony, saying that the business-record provision “also” enabled “important and highly sensitive intelligence-collection operations” to take place. Wheeler speculates those operations include “using geolocation data from cellphones to collect information on the whereabouts of Americans” — something our sister blog Threat Level has reported on extensively.

It’s worth noting that Wyden is pushing a bill providing greater privacy protections for geolocation info.

For now, Wyden’s considering his options ahead of the Patriot Act vote on Thursday. He wants to compel as much disclosure as he can on the secret interpretation, arguing that a shadow broadening of the Patriot Act sets a dangerous precedent.

“I’m talking about instances where the government is relying on secret interpretations of what the law says without telling the public what those interpretations are,” Wyden says, “and the reliance on secret interpretations of the law is growing.”

Senate moves Patriot Act toward extension

Senate moves Patriot Act toward extension*

May 25 2011

Washington • Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he has struck the first of several agreements needed to pass a four-year Patriot Act extension before three provisions expire at midnight Thursday.

The agreement to hold a test vote Thursday morning is the first progress all week in a standoff between Senate leaders and Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who opposes the Patriot Act. Paul has stalled the renewal, saying he wanted Reid to make good on a promise to allow debate on amendments. Reid said there was no time for that.

Congress is under unusual pressure to quickly extend the law, designed to help the government find terrorists on American soil. Once passed by the House and Senate, the extension must be flown to Europe for President Barack Obama’s signature.

DHS To Gain Autonomy Under Obama Cybersecurity Plan

DHS To Gain Autonomy Under Obama Cybersecurity Plan*

The agency will be tasked with protecting federal civilian networks in the same way the DOD protects military and other critical U.S. infrastructure.

By Elizabeth Montalbano,

May 24, 2011

The Obama administration's cybersecurity legislative proposal gives the Department of Homeland Security more power than ever to protect federal networks against cyberthreats and breaks down the department's communication barriers with the Department of Defense to do so, officials told a Senate panel this week.
White House officials testified Monday before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs about the comprehensive plan laid out by the administration nearly two weeks ago to create legislation to protect U.S. critical infrastructure and networks. A video of the hearing is available online.
2010 Threats: Why they happened and the tools available to thwart them.

Take a quick look back to prepare for future threats.
One key aspect of the plan is to put the DHS's mission to protect U.S. federal civilian networks on par with the DOD's mission to protect U.S. military networks, giving the DHS more autonomy to act against cyberthreats on behalf of the government than before.

While the DHS has certainly been at the forefront of federal cybersecurity initiatives, working with the private sector and other agencies such as the DOD and the National Security Agency to share information and make policy, the administration's plan would solidify this role through legislation, officials said.

"[The proposal] strengthens DHS's role to deploy more rapidly intrusion protection, intrusion prevention, and other mechanisms for the federal government," said Philip R. Reitinger, deputy undersecretary for the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate, in what was likely his last appearance before the committee. Reitinger resigned his post last week and will leave the department June 3.

"It gives the DHS--recognizing our similar role to DOD with regard to federal civilian networks--similar authority with regard to personnel so we can bring them on board rapidly," he said. After Reitinger's departure, Greg Schaffer, assistant secretary of the DHS Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, will become acting deputy undersecretary.

The plan also gives DHS "much clearer authority and responsibility to work in a voluntary way" with the private sector, something it already has been doing, he added.

Robert Butler, deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy, also testified about the new relationship the plan would create between his department and DHS, and acknowledged the new cybersecurity authority of the DHS that the plan would bring.

The proposal "breaks down barriers to information sharing" that exist between the DHS and DOD "so that stakeholders can really communicate effectively," he said, adding that it also "really strengthens the ability of the DHS to lead the executive branch" in cybersecurity activity.

The administration's cybersecurity plan is a broad legislative proposal to overhaul the nation's cybersecurity laws with new provisions to solidify privacy protection, data breach reporting, critical infrastructure protection, and the security of federal government systems.

It's an attempt by the Obama administration to get comprehensive cybersecurity legislation through Congress, an effort that--although there are numerous bills before both chambers--has so far been unsuccessful.

White House officials, including two more from the DHS, are scheduled to continue testimony about the cybersecurity proposal before the same committee Wednesday.

Military set to lead on US domestic cyber-security

Military set to lead on US domestic cyber-security

NSA, Cyber Command have 'unparalleled expertise'

By Lewis Page

25th May 2011

The US military will play a leading role in defending homeland America from cyber attacks, and this will include providing cybersecurity to key infrastructure on US soil.

Robert J Butler, deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy, briefed senators in Washington on the plans yesterday. Butler stated that the Defense department would of course safeguard its own .mil domain, but would also closely collaborate with the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice to guard and patrol the rest of America's cyber territory.

Philip Reitinger, DHS bigwig, seemed to imply that the military would lead on cybersecurity even in the domestic sphere.

"We each bring unique things to the table," he said. "DOD [the Defense Department] has unparalleled technical expertise and cyber expertise."

Giving a hint as to just which bits of America the military would be keenest to secure, Butler stated that the US armed forces are "critically dependent" on the civilian power network, telecoms, transport and many other sectors run using computer networks.

"Just as our reliance on critical infrastructure has grown, so have the threats," Butler told the Senate homeland-security committee. His remarks were reported [1] by the US forces press service.

Evidently it is the US military's job to protect the United States from threats both foreign and domestic, but nonetheless there will be those worried by the prospect of military intelligence and security agencies getting involved in utility companies' networks and databases.

To some degree this is already happening. News emerged last year that the National Security Agency (NSA) - which not everyone remembers is a combat support agency of the Defense department [2] – had set up a "black" (secret) programme called "Perfect Citizen", intended to set up monitoring equipment on networks deemed to be of national-security importance, perhaps including those of utility companies.

This would allow the NSA to know when attacks were happening, rather than relying on companies to realise this and then report it. However the prospect also existed that such kit could allow for pervasive monitoring of such things as whether a given property was occupied, perhaps where a given car or rail passenger had been etc etc.

One insider was quoted [3] as saying that "Perfect Citizen is Big Brother".

At the time the NSA insisted [4] to the Reg that Perfect Citizen is "a research and engineering effort. There is no monitoring involved ... it does not involve the monitoring of communications or the placement of sensors on utility company systems ... Any suggestions that there are illegal or invasive domestic activities associated with this contracted effort are simply not true."

Nonetheless the news that the NSA – whose chief is also in command [5] of the uniformed Cyber Command and subsidiary single-service cyberwar units such as the 24th Air Force, 10th Fleet etc – is apparently to advise and guide – if not lead outright – US domestic cyber security efforts may give rise to a little disquiet as well as reassurance.

Solidarity Greetings for the International Republican Socialist Network to our Sisters and Brothers in Kenya on the Occasion of African Liberation Day

Solidarity Greetings for the International Republican Socialist Network to our Sisters and Brothers in Kenya on the Occasion of African Liberation Day

Thu, May 26, 2011

Comrades, Sisters and Brothers,

The comrades of the International Republican Socialist Network send greetings of their deepest solidarity to our sisters and brothers in Kenya on the occasion of African Liberation Day 2011. The IRSN is an organization arising from the struggle for a united, 32-county, Irish workers' republic, which is seeking to build support for a republican socialist strategy in many nations where a fight for national liberation is joined to a struggle for socialism: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Catalonia, Euzkadi, Puerto Rico, and Quebec. Since the time of our founding, we have proclaimed the Pan-Africanist Socialist strategy as the way forward for the masses of the African continent and Africans throughout the globe and we embrace all Pan-Africanist Socialist as our comrades. Your struggle is our struggle; your victory will be our victory.

Today we see the imperialist powers of the world emersed in crisis and chaos and, like an injured predatory beast, they are striking out will all of their violence in an attempt to keep themselves alive and keep those they have dominated and exploited for so long in fear. Right now we are seeing this in the vicious assault they have launched against the people of Libya, who have for so long been a torch in the darkness for the oppressed of the world. The imperialists always seek to smother the light of truth and to hide the reality that there is an alternative to continued exploitation and poverty, but more than this, they are terrified of the Libyan proposals to create a new African currency based on gold, because they know that it would provide a means for Africa to reverse its history of exploitation and enable the people of Africa to use their own mineral resources to empower themselves, rather than to enrich the imperialists.

We stand in defense of the people of Libya and the revolution they launched in 1969 and we call upon all those who are opposed to exploitation and oppression to come to the defense of Libya and insist that the imperialist slaughter ends immediately. We have no doubt that the people of Libya will never allow themselves to again be brought under the heel of imperialist oppression, but they are fighting against the massed array of imperialist militarism and they must be defended.

Imperialism's crisis is the opportunity of the oppressed. We have been recently cheered by the strong showing gained by republican socialist candidates in Ireland and the tremendous victory for the forces of Scottish independence in the elections just held in those nations. We are encouraged by the uprising of the people of Spain against capitalist oppression and we are awed by the courage and tenacity displayed by the Libyan masses fighting to defend their homeland from imperialist invasion. When the working masses become conscious of their own interests as a class, there is nothing in the world that can defeat them.

We salute yet another African Liberation Day and bask in its proud tradition and we say to our comrades in Kenya, know that we stand with you in the fight for a United Socialist Africa and that we embrace you warmly as our sisters and brothers. Forward ever, comrades. Backwards never!

Adh mor,

Peter Urban
Comrade, International Republican Socialist Network

The Book of Immanuel David Isaiah

The Book of Immanuel David Isaiah

This so-called "Testament", made by a rapist named Brian David Mitchell, tries to justifies his actions to the extent of calling himself a "Prophet" of god. But, despite the actions deemed as contrary to the Faith, including that of the Mormons, the writeup speaks much of faith, as according to Daniel Petersen, a scholar of religion, including Mormon studies, Mitchell's revelations were "logical," falling within the traditions of breakaway Mormon groups.

At first, it is as if like Chaucer, or any other English writer who professed to be a man of religion, but on the other hand, it turned out to be a rapist who as if into mind-hallucinating drug end up venting messages about God, Christ, even the end-come. Mitchell was even dubbed as "the One Mighty and Strong", a person used to think of by the Mormon fundamentalists during his time. It even reminds of Marlene Aguilar, who even justifies actions of her son, Jason Ivler against Ebarle; or even Bong Bong Gising, who a drug user spoke in the LRT station in Manila!

Such sentiments vented by these people manifested lies mixed reactions that, some may think of it as wonderful, while others be deemed as crazy and desperate. God forbid, but not all "God's words" came from "God's."

here is the writeup made by David Mitchell, the so-called Immanuel David Isaiah:

Hearken! Oh ye inhabitants of the earth. Listen together and open your ears, for it is I, the Lord of all the earth, the creator of all things that speaketh unto you. Yea, even Jesus Christ speaking by the voice of my servant whom I have called and chosen to be a light and a covenant to the world in these last days. I have called him and given him a name to be had in remembrance before me, even the name Immanuel David Isaiah, which name being interpreted means: God with us—Beloved God—The Lord is salvation—signifying the deliverance that shall come to my people by my mighty hand in these last days. For lo, I am even now making bare my holy arm in the eyes of all nations, for gross darkness covers the earth and gross darkness envelops the minds of the people, for Satan reigns and his dominions are great, and he sitteth upon many waters, even Babylon the great, that great whore of all the earth. And the peoples of the earth stumble and grope in darkness at noonday, and the humble followers of Jesus Christ suffer and mourn under the heavy hand of oppression and murder and secret combinations, which do by their secret crafts and arts, their secret governments and societies, with their false traditions and churches subject the whole earth to the iron yoke of bondage, misery and death; and the true and faithful and humble followers of Christ cry out in the anguish of their soul for relief and deliverance. I, the Lord God, the Savior of the world, have long heard their cries, and the cries of all the holy prophets and saints who have cried unto me, and do still fervently petition me, and to whom I have promised and covenanted that the day of deliverance will come. And verily, verily, I say unto all, Repent ye, Repent ye, while the day lasts; before the night comes, wherein no work or labor for my kingdom can be performed. Yea, verily, I say unto all in every nation, in every land, among all peoples, repent, and come unto me that I may heal you. Forsake all your works of darkness wherein ye seek for riches and the vain and foolish things of this world, wherein ye seek to obtain power and gain and popularity and to satisfy all the lusts of the flesh. Yea, cease to do evil, and learn to do good, and come unto me, and I will Heal you. For this cause I have raised up my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, even my righteous right hand, to be a light and a covenant to my people—to all those who will repent and come unto me, for in my servant, Immanuel, is the fullness of gospel, which I the Lord brought forth out of obscurity and out of darkness through my servant Joseph Smith, Jr. And by the hand of my servant Joseph, I, the Lord God, Jehovah, brought forth out of the bowels of the earth the Book of Mormon, which back contains my true doctrine, and stands with the Bible to witness for my name unto all the earth, to show unto all people that I am the very Christ who suffered and died for their sins, and rose again the third day, that all men who will believe in me, and will repent, and be baptized in my name shall have eternal life. And I, even Jesus Chris appeared unto my servant Joseph Smith, Jr., and I sent min angels unto him, and I revealed unto him many great and marvelous truths pertaining to my everlasting gospel, and I conferred upon him and other faithful ones the holy priesthood of God and ordained them prophets, seers, revelators, and priests and teachers unto my people. And I gave them power to baptize in my name and to confer the gift of the Holy Ghost, which I pour out upon all who are worthy of the same—showing forth works of faith and repentance. And to all those who receive these things of which I have spoken and endure to the end will I give eternal life with me and my Father in my Father’s kingdom, for I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one cometh unto the Father but by me. For this cause I established, through my servant Joseph Smith Jr., the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth with all the keys and powers and ordinances of the Holy Priesthood for the salvation of mankind, being the same church that I established through Peter, James, John in the meridian of time, and it was lost through apostasy and a falling away. And this priesthood and this power, which was lost, I reestablished in these last days through my servant Joseph. And this priesthood and this power have continued with my last day church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, through a succession of prophets until the present day. Wherefore, I, the Lord God will not be mocked, for verily, I say unto you that I have seen the wicked ness and the abominations of my people in these last days, even all the house of Israel, for they have rejected the new and everlasting covenant, even the Book of Mormon, and they have not heeded in the words of mine anointed prophets who cry unto them Repent ye, Repent ye of all your idolatries, and your abominations, and your secret combinations, wherein ye murder to get gain; and my people will not hear. Therefore, I, the Lord God take away even the light which they have. And I hide up the true prophets who are still among them. And I give them false prophets who speak in vain and foolish and lying words unto them. And the fullness of the priesthood keys, authority and power, I bestow upon another who is in their midst and they know him not, unto whom rightly belongs the priesthood and the keys of the kingdom for an ensign, and for the gathering of my people in the last days. Nevertheless, I am a God of perfect mercy, justice, and order, therefore, a portion of priesthood keys and power to perform outward ordinances I leave with them for a short time, for my spirit has not wholly ceased to strive with them. For I have granted unto them an interim period of time to choose whom they will serve, and whom they will follow and obey, even as I did when I anointed David to be king over Israel by the hand of my prophet Samuel while Saul continued king for a time by the voice of the people. As also with the Jews when I walked and ministered among them, I accepted a portion of their sacrifices and outward ordinances for an interim period of time, but that space of time came to an end, for others were anointed in their stead, and the interim time was granted for them to choose a new and everlasting covenant. So it is now. One who is mighty and strong I have ordained in the stead of him who was ordained of God. For he, who was ordained of God and is sustained by the people, has acted deceitfully and is lifted up in the pride of his heart, and he has rejected the fullness of my gospel, even the new and everlasting covenant, and he seeks the praise of the world and exalts himself, and he leads the children of the promise with a flaxen cord down to their destruction. Wherefore, the cup of my wrath and indignation is nearly full to overflowing, for there has never been from the beginning of man upon the earth such great wickedness among the house of Israel, and among the inhabitants of the earth as there now is. And I, the Lord God hold in reserve a swift judgement against every worker of iniquity who will not repent while the day lasts; and lo, lo, I am even at the door. Yea, great and marvelous shall be the destruction of the wicked. Yea, great and marvelous shall be the deliverance of my people, For I, the Lord God will deliver my people with a mighty hand. Yea, I will bring to pass my strange act, my unwanted act, to make all glorying in the flesh a reproach. Yea, I will bring to utter shame and execration all those who exalt themselves. And all those who humble themselves before me, and who are not ashamed of me, and who glorify me in their flesh, will I lift up and clothe them in mine own power in mine own glory, even that of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen.

State of Intent and Purpose

The American Encyclopedic Dictionary defines the word “testament” as: “A covenant esp. between God and man.” The word “covenant” is defined as: “A solemn and binding agreement.” Definitions for the word “study” are: “1) application of the mind to the acquisition of knowledge by reading, investigation or reflection; 2) to examine or investigate carefully and in detail; 3) to think deeply, reflect or consider; 4) to apply oneself to the acquisition of knowledge by reading, investigation or practice.” The word “fellowship” is defined as: “The condition or relation of being a fellow. “Definitions for the word “fellow” are: “1) to make or represent as equal with another; 2) belonging to the same class or group, united by the same occupation, interests, etc; being in the same condition: fellow students, citizens, etc.; fellow sufferers.

In light of these definitions and with that portion of the Holy Spirit which dwells within us, we, the founders of this society make the following statement:

The intent and purpose of The Seven Diamonds Plus One—Testaments of Jesus Christ—Study and Fellowship Society is: To examine carefully and in detail the covenants between God and man as contained in the Testaments of Jesus Christ that are herein se forth; and to think deeply upon, to reflect and consider how we (individually and together) may fulfill the solemn and binding agreements that we have entered into with our God, and to practice—to perform all that we have covenanted to do that in so ding God might thereby bless us according to all that He has covenanted to do. In other words, to associate together as members of this society, in full fellowship and brotherly love, being equal in the temporal things of this earth that we might also be equal in the eternal things of heaven, being fellow sufferers for the testimony of Jesus Christ—together mourning, weeping, fasting, praying, rejoicing, testifying, and singing praises unto God, lifting one another up in all things and thus, “Living after the manner of happiness.”

Hephzibah Eladah Isaiah

Thus saith the Lord God, even Jesus Christ, who speaketh unto you, wherefore, give heed to all my words and trifle not with sacred things, for I say unto all, both young and old, both rich and poor, both learned and unlearned, yea, I speak unto all men in every nation, in every land, and among all peoples, that I, your Lord and your God, inspired my servant Immanuel David Isaiah, by the power of the Holy Ghost, to write the Statement of Intent and Purpose for The Seven Diamonds Plus One—Testaments of Jesus Christ—Study and Fellowship Society. Verily, verily, I say unto all the world, that each of The Seven Diamonds Plus One, which are set forth in the Statement of Intent and Purpose, are most precious in my sight, even as each of the souls of the children of men are most precious in my sight. For I say unto you that each of The Seven Diamonds Plus One has come forth by the power of God, even by revelation and by the power of the Holy Ghost, which inspired the hearts and minds of my faithful and chosen ones, to bring forth the fullness of my everlasting gospel, even from Adam unto Enoch and from Enoch unto Noah and from Noah unto Abraham, Issac and Jacob and from Abraham, Issac and Jacob unto Moses and from Moses unto Jesus Christ and from Jesus Christ and from Jesus Christ unto Peter, James and John and from Peter, James and John unto Joseph Smith, Jr. and from Joseph Smith, Jr. unto Immanuel David Isaiah unto the end the earth. I am Jesus Christ, the Redeemer and Savior of the world, even the word of truth and the light of truth, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world, and this is my light which shines in through The Seven Diamonds Plus One, for they are they which testify of me. For I, even Jesus Christ, descended below all things that I might be lifted up above all things, that I might draw all men unto me. Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my light and my love and my glory, that I lift up all who will come unto me, that they may be where I am, that we may be one, even as I and the Father are one, that they may be in me and I in them, even as I am in the Father and the Father in me that we may be one. Yea, follow my light and come unto me. Follow my light which shines in an through The Seven Diamonds Plus One, for therein shines the testimony of my true and faithful ones who testify of me by the power of the Holy Ghost, which is the light of truth and the word of truth, even Jesus Christ who speaketh unto you. Whoso hath an ear, let him hear! For within my church the wheat and the tares grow together, and the time of the harves has come, wherein I now begin to gather out the wheat from among the tares against the day of burning, which must shortly come to pass, wherein the tares that are left shall be bundled and bound and burned. For I will purge and sanctify my church from all iniquity, even as if by fire, that I may receive her unto myself, pure and spotless and holy. Whaso hath an ear, let him hear. The Seven Diamonds Plus One ~ Testaments of Jesus Christ ! Study and Fellowship Society is where my true disciples will be gathered in against the day of burning, for it is The Church Of The Firstborne, even the society of heaven, and the sanctified, and the redeemed of God. It is the true and living Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in its purified and exalted state. Wherefore, it is I, the Lord your God who is the righteous judge and knoweth my sheep. Fear not man who is as the grass which wanes before the flame. I alone see and know the hearts of men, and I alone know which are the wheat and which are the tares, and I give unto those of humble heart and contriste spirit, who earnestly desire and seek to have my knowledge and my wisdom and my love and my righteous judgement, the ability to discern between the way of the wheat and the way of the tares, or, in other words, between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdoms of this world. These are the mysteries of Godliness, and a fullness of my knowledge and my wisdom and my love and my righteous judgement are only to be obtained through the holy priesthood of God and the ordinances thereof. And in every dispensation of priesthood authority and power and blessings upon the earth there has been and is a corruption and a perversion in the priesthood. For Satan doth creep in unawares and doth sow tares among the wheat. Hear oh heavens and give heed oh earth. For it is through this corruption and perversion in the priesthood of God that he who is expert at putting on all of the appearances of righteousness, to deceive the very elect if it were possible, doth creep in unawares to destroy my flock and scattermy sheep. Therefore, I , the Lord God have given The Seven Diamonds Plus One to light your way that ye be not deceived. And if you have these Seven Diamonds Plus One in your heart, you will have my heart and my righteous judgement to discern and to know and to love and to be wise and to be even as I am. But beware and give heed, oh man! That ye be not lifted up in the pride of your heart to revile the things of God, for I say unto you that the least of these Seven Diamonds Plus One, or that which is considered the least in the eyes of the world, if of far greater worth and is much more precious than all of the combined knowledge and wisdom and wealth and substance of the whole world and the corruptableness thereof. Judge not these things unrighteously.

But look ye to them that might judge aright and not be deceived, for wide is the gse and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Yea, give careful heed to all my words, and do not rest the scriptures to your own understanding and put darkness for light and light for darkness, and call evil good and good evil, or by and by and unawares ye find yourself bound up as a tare, having despised the words of plainness, and having reached beyond the mark, and having wasted the days of your probation, and having put your trust in man and in the arm of flesh; and having persecuted the humble followers of Christ, and having crucified your Lord and Savior unto yourselves afresh, and ye find yourself bound to be burned instead of gathered to be saved, because ye did not search and seek with humble heart and contrite spirit all my words unto you. Amen. Therefore, search these things, even The Seven Diamonds Plus One ~ Testaments of Jesus Christ, for they are faithful and true. Yea, take the Holy Spirit for your guide and trust in no man, except he hath the gifts and fruits of the spirit, and the love of God in him. Yea, put your trust in him who is mighty to save, that he may gather yu as a mother hen doth gather her chicks under her wing that ye might be saved in the everlasting kingdom of God, to go in and sit down and no more go out. All praise, honor and glory be unto our Eternal God, who hath given us his Holy Son and the words of eternal life, that leadeth our souls in a straight course through the mists of darkness, and into the light and love and presence of Jesus Christ, to sing praises unto our Eternal God and His Christ forevermore. I so testify in the name of him whose servant I am, even Jesus Christ. Amen.

27 February 2002

Woe unto ye, scribes and pharisees, ye doctors and lawyers and priests, who wear the habiliments of the priesthood, even as ravening wolves in sheeps clothing, hypocrites! Ye are a generation of vipers, and how can ye escape the damnation of hell, for ye give fine speeches but your works are the works of darkness. Did I not testify unto you, by the mouth of my latter-day profit Ezra, that the whole church was under condemnation because they did not receive the new and ever-lasting covenant, even the Book of Mormon? And what is the covenant of the Book of Mormon? Is it not to care for the widow and the fatherless, and to succor to the needs of the ppor, the sick and the afflicted? Is it not to demand justice and to stand up for the oppressed? Is it not to stand as a witness for me, even Jesus Christ, in all things, and in whatsoever circumstances ye are in? I ask you, have ye done these things? I say unto you, ye have not! For the way was given unto you to discern and to know the secret combinations in your midst, who for power and gain and popularity and to satisfy all the lusts of the flesh, oppress and afflict and slay the children of Israel. I will give unto you and ensample in this thing that ye might see and hear and understand, and repent and come unto me and be healed of your blindness of mind and your hardness of heart and the sickness of your soul. I gave unto you the Word of Wisdom, that ye, through obedience might receive health in your navel and marrow in your bones, and run and not be weary and walk and not faint, and find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures, and I the Lord, gave unto you a promise that the destroying angel would pass you by as the children of Israel and not slay you. Wherefore, I testified through my prophets Joseph Smith and Bringham Young that when ye are sick, ye should not seek unto doctors and the wisdom of the world, but rather ye should exercise faith in me and minister one to another and with wisdom use herbs and fruit and mild food and tender care that ye might be healed. Hearken and rejoice! Oh ye children of Israel, for in these last days, I have revealed many glorious truths that shed far greater light and truth upon my Word of Wisdom and my laws of health. Wherefore, I, even Jesus Christ, appeared unto my servant William G. Gonzalas as he lay dying and I healed him, and I told him that he would with his own hand write a book, and I told him that the name of the book would be The Golden Seven Plus One. And lo, my servant William was the scribe for my servant C. Samuel West whom I raised up to be an Elias in these last days to teach and to testify many glorious truths that shed far greater light and truth upon my Word of Wisdom and my laws of health, and the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, was given by the power of the Holy Ghost unto Samuel, and by the power of my spirit he received it, and my servant William wrote all that Samuel spoke by the power of the Holy Ghost, and thus, they finished the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, and it came forth by my power. And I, even Jesus Christ, will bring forth my great and marvelous work in these last days, and I declare unto all the world, and unto all the house of Israel, that I, the Lord your God, brought forth the book, The Golden Seven Plus One, that I might thereby prepare a people and raise them up, and bring them forth to live upon the earth in peace, without pain or disease and with no poor among them. Wherefore, my servant Samuel has testified both long and loud, as with the sound of a trump, and he doth even now testify unto all the world that these things of which I have spoken are verify true. And thousands of my children have received the truth and have rejoiced in it, and I have healed them of all manner of disease and pain and affliction through their faith in me and in the truths brought forth through my servant Samuel. And lo, my servant Ezra Taft Benson testified unto many that Samuel was my servant and that the book, The Golden Seven Plus One was inspired of God and that it was verify true. Wherefore, the Holy Ghost did witness unto many that the testimonies of my servants were true, but because of false traditions, and unbelief and priestcrafts and secret combinations which blinded the minds and hardened the hearts of my people, my church did not receive their testimonies. Wherefore, an ever increasing desolation and scourge covers the whole earth, and hundreds of thousands and hundreds of millions of the children of men lie down in agony and suffer exceedingly, and die with all manner of incurable diseases and pain and sickness of every kind; and unspeakable horror and death by disease is poured out upon the children of men in an ever increasing desolation and scourge that fills the whole earth with the blood of those who cry out from the ground unto their Eternal God for the sword of vengeance to come down upon the heads of all those who profit and prosper and gain exceedingly from building up those secret combinations, which profit and prosper and gain exceedingly from the suffering and pain and disease and death of the children of men. Know ye not that this great plaque of incurable disease and death of the children of men. Know ye not that this great plaque of incurable diseases is a great pestilence and curse and judgement that rests upon all, and more especially upon all those who have been called of God to testify of me in all things and have not. For verify, verify, I say unto you that it must needs be that many of my children suffer these things, but woe unto you who cause the suffering and death of one precious soul by withholding the truth from them, and by not testifying of these truths unto all men where ye have known the truth, that thereby I might have healed my children. Yea, woe unto all whose who despise the truth and do not walk in the truth when the truth shines as bright and glorious as the noon day sun, but because of blindness of mind and hardness of heart, ye will not see and hear and understand, and repent, and come unto me, that I may heal you. Know ye not that all disease and pain will most assuredly be done away? For I will most assuredly raise up a people to live on this earth in peace, without pain or disease, and with no poor among them. And lo, it will not be done my the wisdom of the world or by the precepts and learning of men, but it will be done by strict obedience to all my laws of health and to all my commandments, and to all my Words of Wisdom unto you. Yea, hear oh heavens! And give heed on earth! The people I will raise up to live in peace upon the earth without pain or disease and with no poor among them, will live by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God. And they will be my people, even a peculier and chosen people unto me for they shall be mine own people. Is not this according to the promise I have given unto the children of Israel in my Word of Wisdom that the destroying angel shall pass them by and not slay them, and they shall have health in their navel and marrow in the bones and they shall run and not be weary and walk and not faint, and they shall have great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures? How long, oh man will ye persist in seeking the praises of men and the world that ye may be popular and profit thereby, and ye care not for the poor, and the sick and the afflicted of my people? How long, oh man, will ye persist in putting on a great show of righteousness when inwardly ye are filled with all manner of abominations and iniquity? Yea did not my prophet Ezra Taft Benson testify boldly unto all the world, both long and loud, as with the voice of a trump, testifying of all those secret combinations, who even now, at this time seek to overthrow the freedom of all nations and the whole earth, and even now, by their fine words, and their secret works, and by the sword, reign with blood and horror upon the earth. Yea and lo, they sit enthroned at the heads of all the governments of all the earth in this the day of their power. And this promised land of the United States of America is the seat of untold depravity and idolatry and murder and secret combinations. And because of exceedingly great pride and self-righteousness and exceedingly strong secret combinations, this nation of the United States of America is the most wicked and depraved of all the nations of the earth. And this nation of the United States of America seeks, in concert with all the rest, to bring the whole earth into complete subjection, and the iron yoke of bondage and servitude and misery and death. And all this for power and gain and popularity and to satisfy all the lusts of the flesh. Have ye testified against these things? I say unto you, ye have not? But rather, ye uphold them and build them up, and put your trust in man and in the arm of flesh to deliver you and to save you instead of he who is your Savior, your Redeemer, your Righteous Judge, and your Wise Eternal Friend, even Jesus Christ, who speaketh unto you, who is mighty to save and deliver. Will ye not now hearken and obey, and forsake all your works of darkness and come unto me that I may heal you? Know ye not that it was because of these same works of darkness that the people of Nephi and the Jaredites were destroyed after having great blessings bestowed upon them even as ye yourselves have had great blessings bestowed upon you? Know ye not that Moroni testified unto you in the Book of Mormon that whatsover nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which sall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not. Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby you may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your over overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be. Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust of vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up. For it cometh to pass that whose buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning. Wherefore, I commanded Moroni to write these things that evil may be alone away, and that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, but that they may be persuaded to do good continually, that they may come unto the fountain of all righteousness and be saved. And if ye know these things, why have ye not taught them? It is because ye are even as Moroni foresake for I showed you unto him, and he knew your doing, and he knew that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; and there are none save a few only who do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hears, unto the wearing of every fine apparel, unto envying, and strifes, and malice, and persecutions, and all manner of iniquities; and your churches, yea even every one, have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts. For behold, ye do love money, and your substance, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, more than ye love the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted. O ye pollutions, ye hypocrites, ye teachers, who sell yourselves for that which will canker, why have ye polluted the holy church of God? Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ? Why do ye not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies - because of the praise of the world? Why do ye adorn yourselves with that which hath no life, and yet suffer the hungry, and the needy and the naked and the sick and the afflicted to pass by you, and notice them not. Ya why do ye build up your secret abominations to get gain, and cause that widows should mourn before the Lord, and also orphans to mourn before the Lord, and also the blood of their fathers and their husbands to cry unto the Lord from the ground, for vengeance upon your heads? Behold the sword of vengeance hangeth over you; and the time soon cometh that he avengeth the blood of the saints upon you, for he will not suffer their cries any longer. Well ye persist in seeking for a sign that these things are true when all things, both in the heavens above and in the earth below, do witness and testify that these things ar verify true? Yea, awful is your situation, for the sword of justice hangs over you and the ax is laid at the root of the tree, and every tree that will not bring forth good fruit will be hewn down and cast in to the fire. And only those who are not ashamed of me will inherit the earth. And all whoredoms and priestcrafts and idolatries and shining images will be swept away even Babylon the great shall fall and crumble to the dust, and great and marvelous shall be the fall thereof. Awake! And arise! Oh Israel! Shake yourselves loose from the awful chains which bind you. Awake! And arise from the dust and wash yourselves clean and clothe yourselves in the garments of truth and put on the whole armor of righteousness and go to with your might to testify boldly, as with the voice of a trump, both long and loud, with humble heart and contrite spirit that my words are faithful and true. And all these who seek me and find me and fight for me in this last great battle, I will clothe in mine own power and in mine own authority to stand against all the powers of darkness and all the fiery darts and shafts in the whirlwind wherein Satan and his demonic hosts rage. Yea, take the Holy Spirit for your constant companion that your faith fail not, and hearken unto my true and living prophets who have my mantle of light and truth and love. Though the whole worlds seeks their destruction and yours and ye are hated and despised, mocked and scorned, ridiculed and condemned, and counted as dress and refuse upon the face of the earth, for even so they hated my true prophets from the very beginning and they cast them out and stoned them, and killed them. And even I, the Savior of the world, was hated by mine own and was taken and crucified upon the cross and suffered and died for all, and I rose again th third day with healing in my wings. Even the wings of my power to heal and make whole all those who come unto me. It is the power given me of the Father. It is the power of the resurrection. It is the power of the eternal lives. And it is the power I desire to give unto you through the Seven Diamonds Plus One that you may come to know me and be even as I am. This is life eternal that ye might know the only true and living God and Jesus Christ whom he hath sent. I am Jesus Christ whom he hath sent. I am Eternal Life. I am the resurrection. I am the life. And no man cometh unto the Father but by me. I alone have the power given me to heal and to make whole all those who come unto me, and I alone give my power to my true and faithful servants. Whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my true servants, it is the same, Amen.

3 March 2002

Shall I, the Lord God of heaven and earth, withhold blessings from mine own children? I cannot; for even as the gentle summer rains fall softly down upon the mountains, my blessings flow down and water and make fruitful and green every living thing that lives and grows. Andye, who are my children, the workmanship of mine own hand, I delight to bless, even as a tender mother does the suckling babe upon her breast; and the contented child upon her lap and the growing young one standing close within her arms. Wherefore, I, the Lord God caught up into the heavens my daughter Betty G. Eadie (?) and gave into her heart the mysteries of my love, and sent her back to earth to write the book, Embraced By the Light, and I commanded her to testify to all the world the wonders of my love. I chose her who is a woman, a sister, a daughter, a mother, for this great and marvelous task that you, my children, might know my love which beats warmly within a mother's heart, in the heart of a woman. For all women are given special gifts to nurture, teach, and love my children, but each of my daughters must, with great care, protect and develop these gifts or they will be lost. I, the Lord God crated man and woman to be one flesh, that tthey as one, might bring forth children and raise them up unto me. Wherefore, it is to fulfill the measure of their creation that a man and woman are joined together; and if they are faithful and obedient in all things, and are valiant in the testimony of Jesus Christ, and they receive all things from my hand, even from those having this authority, they are sealed up together as one throughout all eternity. This is the new and everlasting covenant of marriage according to the order of the highest degree of the celestial kingdom and the holy Melchizedek Priesthood of God. This is in fulfillment of the promise I gave unto Abraham, and unto all the house of Israel, and unto all the children of the promise, whether by blood or adoption, all are heirs who receive me and keep all my commandments, saith your God, even Jesus Christ, who speaketh unto you. This is the covenant and promise of eternal life, even eternal lives, even endless lives, for they have no end. Wherefore, I speak of these things again out of the heavens, of which I have spoken of before, that ye may know that the hour has come and is at hand that I now make bare my holy arm in the eyes of all nations. Yea, the day of my power is at hand. For behold, I restored the power of my priesthood and the fullness of my gospel and my true and living church through my servant Joseph, and since that time there have been only a few who have walked in my power and in the fullness of my gospel and priesthood ordinances. For, from the very beginning of this dispensation, my church and my people refused my law of consecration that they were commanded to obey and would not walk in it. Wherefore, it was taken away and they were cursed. For having refused the law, they could not have the blessing, and instead received a lesser law and a lesser blessing. Furthermore, it was because my people and my church continued in their disobedience to the law of consecration that their enemies came upon them to destroy them. And my prophets sought with great diligence to restore the law unto them but the people and the church would not receive it. And in consequence of their continued disobedience, I, the Lord God took away from my church the fulness of the new and everlasting covenant of marriage, and I commanded them to have one wife only. Wherefore, they received a lesser law and a lesser blessing. Nevertheless, I, the Lord God am merciful and just and I know the hearts of my children, and I restore every blessing lost to them so long as they sin not against the Holy Ghost. Wherefore, if ye have not charity, ye have no promise, and ye are cut off! Hearken, oh my people, for I say unto you that the law of consecration is my law of charity, and it is the very foundation of my gospel and the very cornerstone of my eternal kingdom. For behold, it is through obedience to the law of consecration that, I, the Lord God humble the rich, that I might lift up the poor of my people, that thereby all enbying, strife, malice, whoredoms and priestcrafts and secret combinations are done away and pride is done away and my people live in peace and and there is no lying or stealing or murdering, and my people are blessed and receive a multiplicity of blessings, even an eternal weight of glory and joy and eternal happiness. Yea, the law of consecration is my law of charity and it is the fulfillment of all my laws, even the new and everlasting covenant; wherein every worthy son and daughter who obey all of my laws may receive every blessing, in time and throughout eternity. Wherefore, I say unto all that there are many more of my daughters who are found worthy of every blessing than there are of my sons and wherein shall I bless my daughters with every blessing except in the fullness of the new and everlasting covenant? For it is the nature and disposition of almost all men as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion. Hence, many are called but few are chosen. Wherefore, take heed, and judge not that ye be not judged for all men are born with the nature and disposition to do good and are created in the image and likeness of God. And it is because of the great and eternal weight of responsibility that rests with the priesthood of God, with all the keys, powers, rights and blessings thereof, that great are the temptations to exercise unrighteously that which is given. And it is the nature and disposition of almost all women, when they have a worthy bearer of the priesthood at their head, to be submissive, obedient and faithful to all that I, the Lord God ask of them, and to nurture and love my children with all tenderness and natural affection and to teach them knowledge and wisdom and virtue and Godliness. This is the order of heaven and even my son, David, who was after mine own heart in all things except wherein he sinned with Bathsheba and Uriah, lost his wives which I had given unto him and they were given to another; nevertheless, I am merciful and just and left not his soul in hell, and made him a ministering angel unto those who are worthy of a far greater gloroy. And his priesthood I gave unto another who is called David, even Immanuel David Isiah, even my righteious righthand, whom I have raised up to be a light and a covenant unto my people, to bring to pass the restoration of all things spoken of by the mough of all my holy prophets from the very beginning, and to bring about a fulfillment of the work that my servant Joseph Smith, Jr commenced in this the dispensation of the fullness of times. Wherefore, as I said my church is left with a portion of priesthood keys and power to perform outward ordinances; for the inward ordinances are the sealing powers of eternal lives and eternal blessings by the Holy Spirit of promise, and am conditioned upon obedience to all my laws, otherwise, they are left with only empty rituals, having no efficacy or power. Nevertheless, I am merciful and just and I will honor their outward performances with my sealing power inasmuch as they do not commit the unpardonable sin, which is to sin against the Holy Ghost, and this I will do for an interim period of time. Wherefore, the whole church is cursed for breaking the new and everlasting covenant of my gospel, which is the oath and covenant of my holy priesthood, which is: my people shall live by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God, otherwise, they have no promise. Amen

A revelation from God unto David, commencing in the year before the death of Ezra Taft Benson and continuing after his death. As I was ministering in the holy temple of God, performing the ordinances of the holy endowment, the Lord Gopd spoke unto me saying, my son David, thy sins are forgiven thee, for I have seen thy faithfulness in testifying of me and in doing all that I have asked of thee. I say unto thee, David, that thy offerings and thy sacrifices are accepted of me, and thou art found worthy, through the blood of the Spotless Lamb, to do a far greater work than that which thou hast hitherto done. Yea, I have called thee and chosen thee from before the foundation of the world, for even as I chose Abram and named him Abrahan, and even as I chose Jacob and names him Israel, even so I have chosen thee, David, my son, and I name thee Immanuel David Isaiah, for thou wast fore-ordained to be a light upon a hill, an ensign to the nations, a sign and a portent in Israel. Then I cried out, Oh Lord! How can this be, for I am unlearned and slow of speech and I am the least among all thy servants, for thou knowest my weakness, oh Lord! And the Lord answered me saying, fear not man whose arm is flesh, for I give thee weaknesses that ye might be humble and know that it is I, the Lord your God, who is thy strength, and I shall make weak things strong unto thee. Yea, I shall make thee mighty and strong, as the arm of the Lord. And lo, lo, I shall give unto thee spokesmen to speak for thee. Yea, I shall give unto thee one hundred and forty and four thousand spokesmen to declare all my words which I shall give into thy mouth and they shall testify of me to all the world as with the voice of thunder, and by the still small voice, to shake the whole earth by the power of my spirit; Wherefore, Immanuel, my friend, I give into thy hands the keys of my kingdom, to establish it and to build it up, from it’s foundation, walls and gates to the celestial ceiling thereof. For I say unto thee that I shut the mouth of my prophet Ezra who held the keys of my kingdom because my people would not abide his testimony. And the wolves come prowling at the gate to take the kingdom by force. Yea, they did outwardly feign support and pretended to uphold my prophet Ezra but inwardly they accused him of treachery because he testified against their wickedness. And lo, they are the treacherous ones and they seek to enter in by another way to pass by the Shephered of Israel who stands at the gate. Therefore, I took my prophet Ezra unto myself, And the wolves at the gate pretend to the same power and authority that Ezra walked in, but it is taken from them, and I gave the keys of priesthood power and authority that Ezra held into thy hands. Oh Immanuel! Wherefore, a veil of darkness has fallen over my people and the light is taken from them, and my people mourn the loss and their hearts lament, and they desire to have the light back again, but it is taken away! It is taken away! And I, the Lord God, hid up my true servant Immanuel in the wilderness, and he is in their midst and they know him not. Then I cried out, Oh Lord! Because I am unlearned and slow of speech, the children of men will mock me and hate me, and they will not receive thy words from my mouth. And the Lord spoke unto me saying, my grace is sufficient for all who are humble and meek and lowly in heart, as a little child. And whosoever will receive me, will receive my servant whom I have sent. And unto all those who mock thee and hate thee and who will not receive my words from thy mouth, I will bring down upon their heads great sorrow and shame and anguish of soul, and if they repent not, I will destroy them from off the face of the earth. Yea, I will destroy them even as I destroyed all the inhabitants of the earth in the days of Noah when the people would not repent; and they mocked Noah and hated him and would not hearken unto my words from Noah’s mouth. Therefore, I destroyed them off the face of the earth. And I saved and delivered Noah and family alive. And I will save and deliver all those who follow my light and who walk in all of my covenants, and they shall live long and peaceaby upon the earth. And lo, my servant shall be taken by the enemies of righteousness and they will seek to take away his llife. And they will marr my servant nigh unto death, but they will not take away his life, and I will heal him; that the words of Isaiah might be fullfilled. My servant, being astute, shall be highly exalted; he shall become exceedingly eminent: just as he appalled many-his appearance was marred beyond human likeness, his semblance unlike that of men-So shall he yet astound many nations, rulers shutting their mouths at him-what was not told them, they shall see; what they had not heard, they shall consider. He shall see the toil of his soul and be satisfied; because of his knowledge, and by bearing their iniquities, shall my servant, the righteous on, vindicate many. I will assign him an inheritance among the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the mighty, because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with criminals-he bore the sins of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Who has believed our revelation? On whose account has the arm of the Lord been revealed? Thus saith the Lord God Almighty; It is on my account that the arm of the Lord is revealed. I Am the Great Jehovah. I Am Jesus Christ. I Am the Spotless Lamb. And thus shall my servant suffer for me, and he shall suffer in similitude of me; and thus shall he suffer for my people; that thereby I might lift him up, to be a light and a covenant to my people. And this is my covenant with thee, Immanuel, my friend, I shall make of thee a great nation, and thou shalt be a king and a lawgiver unto my people, for my righteous shall be in thee and in thy seed after thee unto endless generations. And thy posterity shall be as the sands of the sea, and thy reign and thy dominions and thy rule shall be endless, without beginning of days or end of days. This is my covenant with thee and with thy seed. Amen. Wherefore, hearken all ye inhabitants of the earth, and all ye children of the house of Israel, for I say unto you that all the words of Isaiah, even all my words unto you, shall all be fulfilled. And I shall deliver my people by my mighty hand, and I shall, by my righteous right hand, build a New Jerusalem, and I shall establish my kingdom throughout the whole earth. See, I create new heavens and a new earth; former events shall not be remembered or recalled to mind. Rejoice, then, and be glad forever in what I create. See, I create Jerusalem to be a delight and it’s people a joy. I will delight in Jerusalem, rejoice in my people; no more shall be heard there the sound of weeping or the cry of distress. No more shall there be infants alive by a few days, or the aged who do not live out their years; those who die young shall be a hundred years old, and those who fail to reach a hundred shall be accursed. When men build houses, they will dwell in them; when they plant vineyards, they will eat their fruit. They shall not build so that others may dwell. Or plant so that others may eat. The lifetime of my people shall be as the lifetime of a tree; my chosen ones shall outlast the work of their hands. They shall not exert themselves in vain, or bear children doomed for calamity. For they are of the lineage of those blessed by the Lord, and their posterity with them.

Before they call I will reply; while they are yet speaking I will respond. The wolf and the lamb will graze alike, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; as for the serpent, dust shall be its food: there shall be no harm or injury done throughout my holy mountain, says the Lord. And as the new heavens and the new earth which I make shall endure before me, says the Lord, so shall your offspring and name endure. And New Moon after New Moon, Sabbath after Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, says the Lord. And they shall go out and look upon the corpses of the people who transgressed against me, whose worms do not die and whose fire shall not be extinguished. They shall be a horror to all flesh. Wherefore, I raised up my servant Avraham Gileadi and I inspired him by the power of the Holy Ghost to write the book The Literacy Message of Isaiah. And this I did that I, your Lord wand your God might reveal unto you, by the hand of my servant, Avraham Gileadi, the literal message of Isaiah. And now behold, I say unto you again that ye ought to search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah. For surely he spake as touching all things concerning my people which are of the house of Israel; therefore, it must needs be that he must speak also to the Gentiles. And all things that he spake have been and shall be, even according to the words which he spake. And whosoever will hearken unto my words and repenteth and is baptized, the same shall be saved. Search the prophets, for many there be that testify of these things. Amen.

A revelation from God unto Eladah, commencing in the year before the death of Ezra Taft Benson and continuing after his death. As I was ministering in the holy temple of God, performing the ordinances of the holy endowment, the Lord God spoke unto me saying, my precious daughter Eladah, thy sins are forgiven thee, for I have seen they faithfulness in testifying of me and in doing all that I have asked of thee. I say unto thee, Eladah, that thy offerings and thy sacrifices are accepted of me, and thou art found worthy, through the blood of the Spotless Lamb, to do a far greater work than that which thou hast hitherto done. Yea, I have called thee and chosen thee from before the foundation of the world, for even as I chosen Sarai and named her Sarah, even so I have chosen thee Eladeh, my daughter; and I name thee Hephzibah Eladah Isaiah, which name being interpreted means My Delight is in Thee - God Aderneth - The Lord is Salvation - signifying that thou art highly favored and blessed among women, and thou wast foreordained to be the Mother of Zion and of the New Jerusalem, and of the Kingdom of God in this the dispensation of the fullness of times. Then I cried out, Oh Lord! How can this be, for I am unlearned, and I have been hated and despised among of the children of men even since my birth? And the Lord answered me saying, of truth Dephzibah, my delight is in thee, and I say unto thee, thou art the most cherished angel in the heavens, and thou dost not need an earthly school for I will be thy teacher, and the heavens will be opened to thy view that thou mayest be taught from on high. And lo, Satan has hared thee from thy birth for he knoweth thy calling, and he has sought every means to destroy thee and he has tempted all those whom thou lovest most to turn against thee, to destroy thee. Nevertheless, Satan’s bounds are set and he cannot pass beyond them, For I have long heard thy prayers, my daughter Hephzibah, which have ascended up to me from the deep wellspring of thy tender heart, upon the fountain of thy tears; and I am moved, with all the Hosts of Heaven, to plead fervently in thy behalf before the throne of mercy, justice, and grace.

And I know this, my daughter, that all thy suffering and anguish of soul has been for thy good and has given thee experience, and thou hast learned to detect the most subtle appearances of evil, and to put all thy trust in me. Therefore, my daughter, be patient with those people who do not understand thy calling, for in a future day they will understand, and thine own mother shall weep upon thy neck and plead for thy forgivness. And great shame and sorrow and anguish of soul shall pierce the hearts of all those who have hated and despised thee, mocked and scorned thee, ridiculed and condemned thee; and if they repent not, they shall be destroyed from off the face of the whole earth, saith the Lord and thy God. For I knoweth thy heart, my daughter, for thou art after mine own heart in all things and thou doth delight to honor and glorify me in thine every thought, word and deed. And it is thy greatest joy to love my children most affectionately and tenderly, and to teach them knowledge and wisdom and virtue and Godliness. And it is the greatest desire of thy heart to glorify thy God and to uplift and strengthen and inspire the human soul through the playing of inspired sacred music and by the life thou dost live. And thou dost love to sing the hymns of Zion, and a song of praise is continually in thy heart and upon thy lips. And thou dost delight in being meek and submissive and obedient and humble and of broken heart and contrite spirit, even as a little child. And I say unto thee, Hephzibah, thou didst mast assuredly play glorious heavenly music on the pipe organs in the celestial courts on high. And thou didst associate with the Gods, even thy Heavenly Father and Mother and thy Savior, and all the noble and great ones, even thy husband, Immanuel. And thou art known in the heavens for thy nobility and dignity of spirit and for thy deep and abiding love for all that is beautiful and holy and orderly and virtuous and true. And thou dost hate disorder and chaps and greed and enviouness and self-rightness and lying and gossiping and gluttony and hypocrisy and pride and all that is false. Yea thou dost hate sin and thou canst not tolerate it, even as I cannot tolerate sin in the least degree of allowance. Wherefore my daughter Hephzibah, thou and thy husband, Immanuel, I have been trained up and taught most carefully by me in all the mysteries of Godliness and in all my power. Yea, thus saith the Lord thy God unto thee, by my night hand, I have taken thee throughout the land, from shore to shore, and from city to city and from year to year, without purse or script. And my humble followers among every race, kindred, tongue and people, who know my light and have a testimony of me, have ministered to thy needs and have gone on their way rejoicing. And thou didst testify of me, even Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Ghost, throughout the land, and thou didst play glorious sacred organ music to uplife and strengthen and inspire the souls of men; and the heavens were opened to thy view and thou hast had many glorious visions and dreams. And thou didst break forth into singing and sang the songs of redeeming love. And thou didst fast and pray continually. Yea, thee and thy husband, Immanuel, didst eat fruit only for fourteen months; and thou didst eat fruits, vegetables and sprouts for seven months, and thou knowest the sanctifying and healing power of living all my laws of health and all my commandments unto you. Yea, thou didst have great strength to do many mighty works of faith throughout the land among all of my children; for thou knowest I am no respecter of persons, saith the Lord. Yea, through thy great faith in me, thy Savior, thou hast come to know my power of protection and deliverance and providence, and thou hast come to know me. And thou knowest how precious are my lambs and how much I, the Good shepherd, love them; and thou knowest the wolves that come among my lambs to devour them. And thou hast fed my lambs and adminstered the words of eternal life unto them, and thou hast provided a way for their deliverance and salvation.

Thererfore, my daughter Hephzibah, thou art greatly blessed for thy faithfulness, and I, the Lord God, say unto thee, thou art called and chosen to represent Heaven and Heanvely things and to use all of thy talents and abilities to establish my Zion and to build up my kingdom upon the earth, and to testify of me in all things in whatsoever circumstances ye are in. Therefore, I adorn thee with the precious gifts of knowledge and wisdom and understanding and virtue and Godliness and Charity. And the greatest of these is charity, which is my pure love, and my charity never faileth. And all these gifts come by faith through The Seven Diamonds Plus One and by the power of the Holy Ghost. Therefore, Hephzibah Eladah Isiah, thou art called and chosen to be a helpmate unto my servant Immanuel Davidi Isaiah, and to be his wise counselor and best friend, and to be submissive and obedient unto thy husband in all rightouness and to be a comfort and a strenth and a companion to thy husband in every time of trial and affiliction unto the end. And all this that thou mayest receive glory and honor in serving thy husband, as unto thy Lord. This is the perfect order of heaven inasmuch as all things are done in pure love, and in obedience to the Holy Spirit, and in obedience to all my commandments. Wherefore Hephzibah, my most cherished angel, thou wilt take into thy heart and home seven sisters, and thou wilt recognize them through the spirit as thy dearest and choicest friends from all eternity and they shall bring thee great joy, even a multiplicity and an eternal weight of blessings and glory and eternal happiness. And Lo, thou shalt be healed and made whole every whit, and thine own womb shall be opened and thou shalt bring forth a son to sit upon the throne of his father David. And thou shalt take into thy heart and home seven times seven sisters, to love and care for, forty-nine precious jewels in thy crown, and thou art the jubilee of them all, first and last, for all are given unto thee for thy glory and honor and exaltation even as thou art given unto them, for thou art a Queen. Oh Hephzibah! Wherefore, the gifts of agency and stewardship are inseparably connected and are given that ye might learn strict obedience to all my laws and commandments. And the Kingdom of Heaven may be likened unto a small rivulet that flows down from the mountain, and the small rivulet, being faithful and true in it’s course, is added upon and becomes a brook, and the brook continuing faithful in its course becomes large stream, and by and by the large stream is added upon and becomes a might river, and the might river, moving steadily forward in its course becomes and ocean which spreads forth in every direction and fills and covers the who earth. Wherefore, my daughter, righteous desires are fulfilled upon the level at which thy faith is developed and when thy faith is made whole and unshaken in me, all thou dost need do is ask and it shall be given unto the. Therefore, in my own due time and according to my will for thee, and in fulfillment of all that thou dost righteously desire, thou shalt come unto me and feel the wounds in my hands and side and feet, and thou shalt kiss my feet and bath my feet with thy tears, and I shall lift thee up and embrace thee in my arms, and thou shalt be healed and made whole every whit. And thou shalt be sealed up into the Church of the First Borne, and the Sanctified and the Redeemed of God, forevermore. And thou shalt write and play glorious heavenly music for my holy city, even the New Jerusalem. Yea, my servant Johann Sebastian Bach shall be thy servant to the music thou wilt write and play to the glory and honor of the Eternal God and his Christ, even the Annointed Savior who speaketh unto thee. And this is my covenant with thee. Hephzibah, my friend, I shall make of the a great nation, and thou shalt be a Queen and a wise counselor unto my people, for my righteousness shall be in thee and in thy seed after thee unto endless generations. And thy posterity shall be as the sands of the sea, and thy reign and thy dominions and the rule shall be endless, without beginning of days or end of days. This is my covenant with thee and with thy seed. Amen.

Heaken, O ye people, and open your hearts and give ear from afar; and listen, you that call yourselves the people of the Lord, and hear the word of the Lord and his will concerning you. Yea, verily, I say hear the word of the Lord and his will concerning you. Yea, verily, I say, hear the word of him whose anger is kindled against the wicked and rebellious; Who willeth to take even them whom he will take, and preserveth in life them whom he will preserve; Who buildeth up at his own will and pleasure; and destroyeth when he pleases, and is able to cast the soul down to hell. Behold, I, the Lord, utter my voice, and it shall be obeyed. Wherefore, verily I say, let the wicked take heed, and let the rebellious fear and tremble; and let the unbelieving hold their lips, for the day of wrath shall come upon them as a whirlwind, and all flesh shall know that I am God. Those who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence. And an highway shall be cast up in the midst of the great deep. Their enemies shall become a prey unto them, And in the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of living water; and the parched ground shall no longer be a thirsty land. And they shall bring forth their rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim, my servants. And the boundaries of the everlasting hills shall tremble at their presence. And there shall they fall down and be crowned with glory, even in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even the children of Ephraim. And they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy. Behold, this is the blessing of the everlasting God upon the tribes of Israel, and the richer blessing upon the head of Ephraim and his fellows. Awake and arise! Ye sons of Ephraim. For behold, in these last days I, the Lord, have raised up many mighty prophets among the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel and they walk among you having great faith, yet they have not the priesthood of God and the fullness of the Gospel which you have. And lo, they are in your midst and you know them not, and they walk in great faith with signs following. Yea, they have visions and dreams and they prophecy and work might miracles, for I am no respector of persons, saith the Lord; and all these gifts come by faith. Therefore, by faith they receive power and authority to do many mighty works, though they have not the ordinances of salvation. And lo, the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel are scattered throughout the earth and more especially in the northern countries. Now answer me this, ye sons of Ephraim! How shall ye recover the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, when their true prophets even now walk in greater power and authority than you, who hold the Priesthood of God? And this because of their great faith in me. For behold, their true prophets have received a lesser portion of light and truth that that which you have received, yet they walk in greater portion of the light and truth which they have received. Therfore, they are faithful stewards and profitable servants. Therefore, they are given more light and truth and more power and authority to do mighty works of faith. While you, who have received a greater portion of light and truth, walk in a lesser portion of the light and truth which you have received. Therefore, you are unfaithful stewards and unprofitable.
Servants. Therefore, even the light and truth which you have is taken away and you have less power and authority to do mighty works of faith. Hark and rejoice! For I say unto you, that I raised up my servant Rick Joyner unto the Lost Ten Tribes of Isreal and I gave unto him visions and dreams and I revealed unto him the many glorious truths which shed far greater light upon my true doctrine and upon the coming forth of my great and marvelous work in these last days. And behold I commanded my servant Rick Joyner to write it in a book and by the power of the Holy Ghost he wrote it and he named the book The Final Quest and it came forth by my power. And lo, because the book, The Final Quest sheds far greater light upon my true doctrine and upon the coming forth of my great and marvelous work in these last days it is of great and eternal worth unto all the House of Isreal and unto all the inhabitants of the earth saith the Lord. And verily, I say unto all you are of the blood and lineage of Ephraim, know ye not that you were lost and I recovered you? Yea, you are one of the Lost Ten Tribes of Isreal and I recovered you first that the promise might be fulfilled which I gave unto your fathers, Ephraim and Joseph by the hand of their father Israel who is Jacob. Therefore, you have has a great and eternal weight of blessings bestowed upon you according to the promise. Furthermore, there rests upon you the great and eternal honor and blessing and privilege and responsibility if you are faithful to recover all of the Last Tribes of Isreal- to gather them in from their long despersion even all the children of promise even all the House of Israel. Wherefore ye sons of Abraham, Issac and Jacob and Joseph and Ephraim, do you think you can walk in less power and authority than your father walked in and accomplish this mighty work yea, this great and marvelous work? Do you think you can walk in less power and authority than Joseph Smith and Brigham Young waked in, who delivered my people with a mighty hand? For behold, I say unto you, ye sons of Ephraim that you must walk in even greater power and authority than Joseph and Brigham. Yea, I say unto you that you must walk in even greater power and authority than I did when I walked and ministered among the Jews. For behold your are my last day church in this the dispensation of the fullness of times. An you are called and chosen to represent me, even Jesus Christ, upon the earth and therefore you must walk in my last day power and authority to bring forth my great and marvelous and mighty work. Even the restortation of all things spoken of by the mouths of Adam and Enoch and Noah and Abraham and Issac and Jacob and Joseph and Moses and Elijah and Isaiah and David and John the Baptist and I Jesus Christ and John the Beloved and Nephi and Alma and Moroni and the brother of Jared and Joseph Smith. And you my some, Oh Ephraim! Must needs accomplish a greater work than all those mighty prophets of God who went before you. For you are my last day church which is called by my name even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and you must needs walk in my last day power and authority. For behold ye are the sons of the noble birthright! Therefore I say unto you, yea, I command you, Oh Ephraim! Awake and arise! Shake yourselves loose from the awful chains which bind you! Awake and arise and come forth out of Babylon and wash yourselves clean! And be clothed in the beautiful and holy garments of light and truth and put on the whole armor and righteousness and salvation and take hold of the sword of my spirit and the word of God and come up, ye sons of Jacob, to the light upon hill. Yea, come and lift up the ensign to the nations, yea come and follow the sign and portent in Isreal. Yea, come and partake of the waters of eternal life freely. And walk as the mighty sons of Jacob in the full power and authority of the Holy Priesthood of God. Yea, come listen to a prophets voice even the voice of him whom I have sent crying in the wilderness. Repent Ye! for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Yea, come listen to my servant Immanuel David Isaiah for in him is my light and my convenant unto my people even all my servants then consider this. I even Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, came unto mine own and mine own received me not. Yea, they counted me to be of no worth and the least among all the children of Isreal and I was taken by mine own and they crusified me upon the cross. Wherefore, ye sons of Jacob, if ye wait for another deliverer ye must needs wait in vain and ye must needs be destroyed even as the Jews for they would not receive me and they waited in vain for another and they were destroyed saith the Lord. Wherefore, ye have my Righteous Right Hand. And the Holy Ghost doth witness unto you that it is I who speaketh unto you. I am the Spotless Lamb. I am the Great Jehovah. I am Jesus Christ who am mighty to save and deliver, Therefore, listen of obey. Amen.

This is the 27-page Book of Immanuel David Isaiah, dated April 6, 2002. Authorities believe this is the work of Brian David Mitchell, suspected of kidnapping Elizabeth Smart in 2001.
