More Glimpses into Heaven!
Hello my dear friends!
This has been a very exciting few weeks for me. I have learned so much about new things in heaven, and particularly about the dramatic morning of April 12th in heaven around God's temple. Many of you have asked about this, and are excited to hear about what happened when Jesus came that day, and how the smoke of God's wrath was cleared away. I have it all in this post!
Please read this with a prayerful heart, and please verify all that I said is true. There is so much new information! You might even ask to connect to your unconscious self who was in the grand meeting on April 12th, and see if you can 'see and hear' any of the events of this great day. I believe that our Heavenly Parents would grant this blessing to you! You might also seek to be with me on April 23rd, to accompany me when I bless the waters.
Until next time!
Your friend and fellow servant,
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-4-2017, Tuesday
"This morning in prayer, I was at the overlook of the city of Zion, at the point where the stream from the large lake by the great meeting hall was. I was at this beautiful overlook of the valley where the city of Zion was located.
My Heavenly Parents came. They each were warm and loving with me. I prayed for my family, for all the mortal angels, for the 144,000, and for the elect of God. At the end of my prayer, Enoch came. He was going to talk to me and take me somewhere it seemed. I saw myself going to the large assembly hall with him. Then I saw the people of his city, Zion, pour into and fill the large assembly hall. I was up in the front with him. I then saw myself speaking to the group before me. At this time, I felt I should write some of the words of my message, here in my journal. Here goes–we'll see how this turns out! These are some of the words of me, Raphael, in the large assembly hall to Enoch's people:
'My very beloved Saints of God! I feel so blessed to speak to you today! I see in your eyes and faces great light and the love of God. You have each served God faithfully, all these years since you came here with your city, to the lovely valley, over the hill to our east.
You are very privileged also to be messengers of God at this time, in service to those on earth. As you know from your frequent visits there, the world is darkening in great wickedness and sin, much like happened to your world when you were on the earth.
Your missions among your fellow mortals, now living on earth, are critical in our Heavenly Parents' plan in rescuing the elect of God. You will be receiving more and more directions, alone and together, in helping inspire and lead the chosen elect of God to places of safety, and in ways to lead them to Jesus Christ. Your labors of service will greatly increase in the coming days too. All of our directed efforts will be inspired from our loving Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, and their Beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
The time now has also come for you to multiply your efforts on earth by replicating yourselves, as God inspires you. We who are angels of God are already doing this. You too have this capability, being translated and transfigured before God. This hasn't been your normal mode of serving, up to this point, but now it will be necessary because of the greatness of the rescue effort before us!
Your primary role will be to help awaken the 144,000, spoken of in the Book of Revelation, 12,000 from every tribe of Israel. You will also labor abundantly among the elect of God, scattered among all the nations of the earth. These two groups are your focus. God will inspire and bless you in all your loving service to them.
God bless you in your labors! We love you greatly!'
After I spoke to the congregation, I sat down and Enoch, their great prophet arose. He asked each of them in that great assembly hall, to kneel where they were. He then led them in a prayer to their Heavenly Parents. At the conclusion of their prayer, our glorious Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother came among us! They came to the front and walked their way to the back of the great hall, mingling with these, their choice children of the people of Enoch. Many tears were shed, and soon all of the holy angels were there too, above and among all the people. It was amazing!
It was very clear to me that this is the work of God we are all involved in! It is the day of gathering the elect of God, of gathering Israel from all the earth prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ.
After writing all of this above, I went back to my bedroom and knelt down. I asked my Heavenly Parents if all of this really happened. I felt a very strong confirmation that it did–just as I recorded it! I feel so very blessed to participate in such marvelous experiences!"
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-5-2017, Wednesday
"This morning in my prayer, I felt to kneel and pray at the north side of the little stream which left the large lake next to the great hall. I was facing the lake, looking west over the water. My Heavenly Parents came across the water until they came before me. They had happy eyes and smiling faces for me, which always makes me feel uplifted and so loved!
During the course of our talk, I had the impression that this lake was about the size of Utah Lake. I had some questions about it:
Q– Is there some connection between this beautiful lake and Utah Lake, which is not far from my home?
A– Yes! Utah Lake was created and patterned after this beautiful lake! When Utah Lake is cleansed up to and in the millennium, it will look very much like this lake in heaven. The surrounding hills, and even the shape of the lakes are very similar. It was very appropriate that the cleansing of the earth, to a terrestrial state, and eventually to a celestial state, had begun here in August 2016.
Utah Lake Map
The entrance of the Provo River into Utah Lake looks similar (same entry location) to the river representing Heavenly Father as it flows into this lake in heaven. The location of the exit of the Jordan River is in the same location as the exit of this stream where you are now praying to us. The Salt Lake Valley is in a similar location with respect to Utah Lake, as the beautiful valley where the city of Zion is located with respect to the lake in heaven. In heaven, this stream flows east, and on earth the Jordan River flows north to the Salt Lake Valley. On earth, the Provo River flows west, and the river representing Heavenly Father flows north, from the fountain of living waters. This entire lake in the celestial world is living, heavenly waters.
Q– Is there anything else of significance between these two lakes, the one in heaven and Utah Lake on earth?
A– Yes. The lake in heaven will actually provide the cleansing power for Utah Lake. From here, starting at Utah Lake, the entire earth will be changed and cleansed by the virtue and purity and beauty of this lake in heaven.
Q– Does this lake in heaven have a name?
A– Yes. It is named 'Lake Beautiful', for it is so breathtakingly beautiful! The water is crystal clear and glows with light. Many plants and animals adorn its borders. Many fish and water creatures swim in its body. Lake Beautiful is a stunning setting for the large assembly hall on its western borders. It is a place where the inhabitants of the city of Zion frequently come to relax and enjoy. Feel free to come to its shores anytime you wish, to pray, meditate, or help anyone, as you feel inspired. Lake Beautiful has been created particularly by your Heavenly Father, and is included at the end of his area, to the north of his harvested wheat field.
Q– Is there also a return of the water from the river representing Heavenly Father, that flows into Lake Beautiful, which returns to the fountain of living waters to the south?
A– Yes. This return of water comes from the bottom center of the lake, in an underground river or channel. This is similar to the method of return water from the Lake at God's Loving Healing Center, that you have seen before, which is from the river representing Heavenly Mother.
I thanked my Heavenly Parents for this beautiful area in the celestial world that I have been so privileged to visit! Lake Beautiful is such a peaceful area!"
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-5-2017, Thursday
"Last night I had my prayer at the edge of the valley, near the stream that went to the city of Zion. I was facing east. I was on a rock that was on the cusp of the valley as it went down.
My Heavenly Parents came and I communed with them. I could also tell I was there in my replicated celestial person, and that my unconscious mind was linked to my mortal, conscious mind.
At the end of my prayer, I asked if I could visit the city of Enoch below us, and have a much better remembrance of this visit. My Heavenly Parents seemed delighted with my request! Soon Enoch, the prophet, was next to me. We all four were going to go down together, and Enoch would be there leading our discussion and tour!
As we started, I was between Heavenly Father (on my left) and Heavenly Mother (on my right). Enoch was on the left side of Heavenly Father.
We followed the stream to the center of the city. It went directly to their own fountain of living water, just like the one in front of God's temple, not far away. The water flow came out in multiple directions from the base, in open troughs to all directions into the city–to homes and lands of the people.
There was also a tree of life just east of the fountain. It was very large and beautiful! I saw a second tree of life growing on the eastern side of the first tree, not quite as large. Enoch said that they had planted this one for the New Jerusalem some time ago. It would be transplanted there at a future date. I came to understand that the New Jerusalem would also have its own fountain of living water as well, which water would come from deep in the earth.
I was shown the library where Enoch had the records of the people. There were records of their time on earth, and their translation and movement as a group and city to this location in the celestial world. Enoch said that this city, the city of Zion, would merge one day soon, with the city of the New Jerusalem. All the records would then be placed in the same area together in that library in the New Jerusalem. This would happen soon after the second coming, when the earthly mission of his people would be completed. They would fall upon our necks, and we would each kiss each other in a joyous union, as two righteous groups would meet together for the first time.
I was also taken into one of the homes in the city. My impression was that these people did not eat nor sleep any longer, for their translated state had become perfected. They drank the living water from their fountain, and ate of the tree of life in the center of their city, of its white fruit. This fully sustained them. They were often gone to earth to serve the faithful as they were individually directed to do so by God. In this process, they had not replicated themselves up to this point. However, ever since my speech to them in the large assembly hall a few days ago, they were now learning how to replicate themselves so they could be in multiple places at the same time. This would allow them to greatly increase their service to the elect of God, in the rescue efforts that God was ramping up. This could only be done once the Times of the Gentiles were fulfilled, and the day of the gathering of Israel was initiated. This time has now happened!
I also met a few people in the city of Zion. They were happy and smiling, with lots of light coming from their faces. I saw the city hall building, which Enoch said it wasn't used except for occasional meetings. There was no contention, but great harmony among all of the people, so that there was little need for a governing body to control the people, or to keep them in line.
I saw too that there were no children, for those who were children at the time of their translation were now adults. They were all perfected it seemed, to a high degree of self-governance. They exuded great love for each other and for us as we walked by.
I also remember a conversation from Enoch last night, that his people were waiting for entrance into the Church of the Firstborn. They have all, every one, been accepted by Jesus Christ for entrance, and now are patiently awaiting their ordinance of the waters of separation by me, and recording of their names in the Lamb's Book of Life by Oriphiel. They are also eager to receive their culminating temple ordinances by a high priest or a high priestess of this church. This event will happen for many, if not all of them, prior to their city coming down from heaven to join the New Jerusalem.
When our tour of the city of Zion was done, I next realized I was back on the rock above the valley, with my Heavenly Parents before me. Enoch had left. I thanked them for answering my prayer to visit the city of Zion below us. I then closed my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ. I next felt like I was falling back to my kneeling position on earth. It was past midnight when I came to bed.
This was 4-6-2017, the birthday of my Savior Jesus Christ. I thanked God for his birth to the earth, and for the establishment of the Church of Christ on the earth on April 6, 1830, exactly 187 years ago.
D&C 20:1– The rise of the Church of Christ in these last days, being one thousand eight hundred and thirty years since the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the flesh, it being regularly organized and established agreeable to the laws of our country, by the will and commandments of God, in the fourth month, and on the sixth day of the month which is called April"
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-7-2017, Friday
"Last night I prayed in the gardens west of the tree of life, next to the river representing Jesus Christ. At the end of the prayer, I asked to see where this river went. I walked with Jesus who joined my prayer. We two walked westward from the tree of life and the garden. We soon came to a large rocky waterfall area. The water from the river went crashing down rocks into a large open hole in the ground. It reminded me of what I had pictured in the tree of life account in the Book of Mormon–with a gulf that separated those by the tree and those in the great and spacious building. It wasn't where I had pictured it in my mind before, however. It was at the end of the garden area, west of the tree of life.
Here are my questions:
Q– Is this rocky waterfall, at the end of the river representing Jesus Christ, the same gulf that Lehi and Nephi saw, between the tree of life and the large and spacious building?
Q– Is there a large and spacious building there now?
A– No, for it has fallen, and great has been the fall thereof (see 1 Nephi 8:26 and 11:35-36). This great fall forebodes the fall of the current nations of the earth.
1 Nephi 8:26– "And I also cast my eyes round about, and beheld, on the other side of the river of water, a great and spacious building; and it stood as it were in the air, high above the earth."
1 Nephi 11:35-36–
"35 And the multitude of the earth was gathered together; and I beheld that they were in a large and spacious building, like unto the building which my father saw. And the angel of the Lord spake unto me again, saying: Behold the world and the wisdom thereof; yea, behold the house of Israel hath gathered together to fight against the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
36 And it came to pass that I saw and bear record, that the great and spacious building was the pride of the world; and it fell, and the fall thereof was exceedingly great. And the angel of the Lord spake unto me again, saying: Thus shall be the destruction of all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people, that shall fight against the twelve apostles of the Lamb."
Celestial Temple Map
Q– What is now on the other side of this rocky waterfall area?
A– It is a large and spacious field, similar to the one Lehi saw (see 1 Nephi 8:9). However, it is now in a different location than when Lehi saw it. It can be configured differently for the needs of the Lord, Jesus Christ, in showing his people different things in dreams, visions and visitations here.
1 Nephi 8:7-9–
"7 And it came to pass that as I followed him I beheld myself that I was in a dark and dreary waste.
8 And after I had traveled for the space of many hours in darkness, I began to pray unto the Lord that he would have mercy on me, according to the multitude of his tender mercies.
9 And it came to pass after I had prayed unto the Lord I beheld a large and spacious field."
Q– Does this hole in the ground where the river representing Jesus Christ falls into the rocky waterfall, return underground to the foundation of the living water, next to the tree of life?
A– Yes. All three rivers, representing Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother and Jesus Christ, return to the fountain of living waters in underground rivers or channels. Each river and return has been crafted by their respective God, whose river represents them. For Heavenly Mother, the return is from the lake at God's Loving Healing Center, and the underground waterfall and underground lake. For Heavenly Father, his river flows into Lake Beautiful, and from the center of this lake, returns to the fountain of living waters. For Jesus Christ, the rocky waterfall in the hole in the ground returns in an underground channel, which returns to the fountain of living waters.
This entire area, encompassing all three rivers, God's Loving Healing Center, the city of Zion, and Lake Beautiful, comprise the area spoken of in Revelation 12:6 as the wilderness, where the woman (the church of God in pre-mortal times), fled from the dragon (Satan and his hosts), where she was protected from his wrath. This area always has been a sanctuary for the righteous, in the celestial world. Once Lucifer fell and rebelled, he never could enter into these lovely and protected areas.
God's Loving Healing Center Complex Map
"5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days."
In my prayer this morning, I was near the rock waterfall area. My Heavenly Parents were before me. I asked about my standing before them. Heavenly Mother said this in response:
'Raphael, your actions are pleasing to us, for you are living a quiet, righteous life in mortality, and in the celestial realms you are acting on every commandment we give you. Your important work is now predominantly in these celestial realms as an archangel of God, and as a healing angel before us. The mortal angels are also acting in this sphere too, in obedience to all that we direct them. All is progressing as we have planned for these difficult days that are upon our children. We love you and all the holy angels, and are pleased with your combined actions.'
I felt pleased with her response, and I feel at peace. I think back to the day in my energy class, when Heavenly Mother came and showed me how to 'heal her daughters', in April 2013. I didn't see her face then only her outline. Now I can see her eyes and smile and face. This really makes me happy and so attached to her! I never want to do anything to displease her. I want to be in her presence continually. She brings me great comfort and peace.
Later: I saw the news yesterday, and President Donald Trump ordered an attack on Syria. This happened yesterday. I read several accounts of why this happened. The most common news report is that the US attack is retaliatory because of a supposed chemical attack by Assad (leader of Syria) on his own people. However, the report I believe is correct is that the chemical attack by Assad is fake, and all made up, or done by another group (this is called a false flag attack). It is an excuse for Trump and the Elites to instigate war. I believe we have no reason to be in Syria. Our involvement in that region does the United States no good, but would benefit the elite who want more money. They get lots of money from wars.
I actually don't know much about what is going on, except that the world is plunging into war. On March 27th, 2017, not even two weeks ago, Gabriel the archangel blew his trumpet of God above the Middle East. He released four angels of destruction to initiate the 13-month war. I believe we are on the very onset of these hostilities that will soon erupt in this region of the Middle East, and probably the entire world.
There is also so much controversy in the news about what is real. The mainstream news agencies call much of what I read 'fake' news. The news I like to read is more grass-roots news. However, it is all so confusing to know what is real, since there is so much secrecy and cover-up happening in government and industry. This is normal in our day of great conspiracies, and the designs of evil men who want gain, power and control of the people. I yearn for a day of peace and trust, which won't come until the New Jerusalem area is built, and the millennial day is upon us."
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-8-2017, Saturday
"I had my prayer on the granite cliff at the east end of Heavenly Mother's upper gardens. Both of my Heavenly Parents came. I now believe I have, in my replicated translated and transfigured body, which dwells in the celestial world above, at least a twice-a-day communication set up with my Heavenly Parents. This is where I am able to commune with them, and they with me. There is a lot that I don't receive in my mortal conscious mind. However, there is so much that I am doing in these celestial spiritual realms that I need these direct meetings, twice daily at least, with my Heavenly Parents.
When I pray by my bed, each day twice a day, I also am able to 'join' these meetings. I can perceive then, in my conscious mind, some of what is happening and how I am being directed as an angel of God. I am also able to ask certain things that, so far, God is quick to answer. I feel so blessed to have this 2x-a-day communication, directly with God, my Heavenly Parents!
Today I confirmed what I had seen, with the hole in the ground, with treacherous rocks and a waterfall at the end of the river representing Jesus Christ, which crashes into this hole. I sketched on the computer, these areas that I have seen in the celestial world. (Note: one may wonder what a treacherous, rocky hole in the ground is doing in the celestial world. I believe it is in an area that is adapted for various purposes, like for Lehi's Tree of Life vision, where good and evil are shown clearly. I am unclear why else there would be such a rocky hole there!)
Heavenly Mother's Gardens Map
(Note: I believe that the cloud in the sktech above comes and goes, and was
specifically to keep me from seeing the valley and the
city of Zion before I should see it.)
Later: I have more questions:
Q– Is Lake Beautiful significantly larger than Utah Lake?
A– Yes, very much larger!
Q– I knew Joseph Smith, the prophet, said that the city Zion and surroundings were taken from what is now the Gulf of Mexico. Is this correct, and if it is, is this the approximate size of the valley in heaven where the city of Zion is located?
A– Yes, what Joseph said is true. The size of the Gulf of Mexico and the valley of the city of Zion in the celestial world are approximately the same size.
I looked online and the breadth of the Gulf of Mexico is about 810 miles, or 600,000 square miles. The depth of the Gulf of Mexico is 14,380 feet. See the reference from Joseph Smith about the Gulf of Mexico and the city of Zion:
"(Altar of Adam at Adam-ondi-Ahman)
Again President Young said Joseph the Prophet told me that the garden of Eden was in Jackson Co., Missouri, & when Adam was driven out of the garden of Eden He went about 40 miles to the Place which we Named Adam Ondi Ahman, & there built an Altar of Stone & offered Sacrifice. That Altar remains to this day. I saw it as Adam left it as did many others, & through all the revolutions of the world that Altar has not been disturbed. Joseph also said that when the City of Enoch fled & was translated it was whare the gulf of Mexico now is. It left that gulf a body of water. Joseph Young, Enoch & His City (pamphlet), p. 12 (footnote).
Joseph Smith said on another occasion, in the hearing of some of the saints still surveying, that the City of Enoch would again take its place in the identical spot from which it had been detached, now forming that chasm of the earth, filled with water, called the Gulf of Mexico." (emphasis added, spelling left the same as in the original, see Zion — Returning to the Gulf of Mexico?, Wilford Woodruff’s Journal, 30 March 1873)
Q– Why does it seem that I can easily move around in this celestial 'wilderness' area if it is so vast?
A– You are comparing distances on earth with distances in heaven, which is not easy to do, for one is measured in telestial distance, and one in celestial distance. Your movement around the celestial world is instantaneous also, making it seem so close together. There is a lot of space between the locations that you visit regularly in the celestial world.
Q– What is meant by telestial distance and celestial distance?
A– Telestial distance is measured in three dimensions, whereas celestial measurements include other dimensions. One of these other dimensions is time, with which you are familiar, and can be changed, to view past, present and future. There are other dimensions which cannot be comprehended by your conscious mind, but which are real and a part of the celestial environment. Your view of heaven, the celestial glory of God, is seen through your conscious mind capacity, so that you may understand it. Once you actually live in celestial glory, your perspective will be unlimited, and will take on an entirely new paradigm. What you see and write is true and accurate for you conscious mind to grasp and understand.
Q– Will the world, and most good people on the earth, who are God-fearing, be entirely caught unawares by the events leading up to and including the second coming of Jesus Christ?
A– Yes, for "the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night" (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3). Many of the prophesied events will happen and be fulfilled without the people knowing. An example of this is the Fulfilling of the Times of the Gentiles, and the 6th angel blowing his trumpet of God (Gabriel). These have both recently occurred, without anyone knowing. These events may be revealed to you and to the astute in spirit, but not to those in the world who do not inquire. The events of the coming of the Son of Man will gradually and steadily be fulfilled and occur, with few who will know of these events. Some are also done on terrestrial and celestial levels, which are not seen on the telestial sphere of the earth on which you dwell. The earth is now transitioning to a terrestrial state, but most of the inhabitants remain at a telestial level where they cannot see or understand these signs and events. The work of angels in done on a celestial level, and is almost entirely not seen by the peoples of the earth.
Q– Will the blessing of the waters in the Jackson County, Missouri area, be done this month of April by Raphael?
Q– Will this blessing of the waters be done after an earthquake in the telestial sphere affects that area?
A– There has already been a major earthquake in that area in the terrestrial sphere of the earth. This precedes the great earthquake in the telestial sphere which will be felt by people living on the earth. The terrestrial earthquake has been spiritually felt by some, but not by the majority of people. Similar events in the terrestrial realms on the earth will precede those in the telestial world also. Natural disasters fall into this category, where there is a terrestrial event, soon followed by a telestial event. This is part of the convulsions of mother earth who does these terrestrial then telestial calamities, the one spiritually proceeding the latter.
As far as your blessing the water vein in the Jackson County area, this too will happen on two levels–first upon the terrestrial sphere on the earth, and then upon the telestial sphere. You will be doing the first terrestrial blessing of the waters this month of April 2017, and the second blessing shortly thereafter once all feel the earthquake, which will do so much land mass destruction.
Q– Did the cleansing blessing on mother earth, that occurred on August 2016 at Utah Lake, have two different parts to this blessing, a terrestrial and a telestial blessing?
A– The blessing of mother earth, to start to move from the telestial to a terrestrial level of the earth, and to be cleansed was done on all three levels (celestial, terrestrial, and telestial) at the same time by you, Raphael, assisted by the healing angels when you gathered at Utah Lake.
1) The presence of Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother and Jesus Christ was there, and all the holy archangels and angels too–allowing this blessing to be done on a celestial level of grandeur and significance. This amazing event was heralded to mother earth by the union sounding of the trumpets of God. This was a very celestial-level event!
2) On the terrestrial level, the one where the earth is destined to move into and be transitioned to when the Savior Jesus Christ comes to the earth in glory–there was a dramatic awakening of the earth like she has never before experienced! She awoke to her memories of being a terrestrial earth in the days of her creation, and was commanded to transition again back to that glorious level! Mother earth was overjoyed to receive this long-awaited promise. This was all done on a terrestrial levels so she could hear and see and know clearly of the path she needed to move towards. This was the beginning of mother earth reacting with great calamities on her surface, first in a terrestrial state, then soon followed by a telestial level event for all to experience on her surface. Before August 2016, mother earth did not precede a telestial event on her surface with a terrestrial, pre-curse event.
3) On a telestial level, the day of her blessing on August 2016, the earth was given a clear message to cleanse her pollutions that have so soiled her surface. She has the capability to do so, aided by the power of Lake Beautiful in the celestial world. The power of Lake Beautiful comes from her living waters that are pure and holy, with capability to cleanse every pollution on the earth (including nuclear pollutants which are now on her surface and will be increasing). Mother earth has gladly accepted this mandate to cleanse, and has fully received the help from the abundant living waters in Lake Beautiful. This same water and its power will also make possible the living waters to flow onto the surface of the earth from deep within her bowels, coming to the surface at Jackson County, Missouri. This will be part of your blessing, Raphael, when you bless the waters in that location, on both first a terrestrial and then later a telestial level.
Q Were the events of 10-3-2016, a white cloud on Mount Zion, when the earth was again blessed by Raphael and Rachael, and the solar system–also done on a celestial, terrestrial and telestial level?
Q– Were the sounding of the trumpets of the six archangels of God who have already sounded, were these done on a telestial and terrestrial level, and not a celestial level?
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-9-2017, Sunday
"Today my wife and I drove to West Haven, Utah for the baby blessing of our grandson, bright and early at 9 am. . .
During the sacrament, I felt to go to the dark and dreary wilderness, right next to the treacherous rocky hole into where the river representing Jesus Christ disappeared.
After the priest blessed the bread, I made my covenant to my Heavenly Parents, with uplifted hands, on my knees. Then I waited, and Jesus came next to me, and asked that I come with him. We walked to a place on the other side of the hole, in the garden area not far from the tree of life. Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother were there to meet us. I then partook of the bread back in the ward.
Heavenly Father then spoke to me:
'Raphael, we accept the covenant that you have made today. You have received so much truth this week, and will continue to receive more and more. These are the mysteries that have never been revealed before, but are now being revealed through you. These great gems of truth are now pouring out onto the world, to the pure in heart, in preparation for the glorious millennial day where all things will be revealed. You are truly blessed, my son!'
Then there was the blessing of the water by the priest. When done, I made another covenant before these three Deity before me. I then partook of the water.
Then Heavenly Mother addressed me:
'Raphael, you are blessed today to be with your family. We will bless and protect your loved ones in the troubled days ahead, because of your faithfulness to us. We will bless them in all things, as much as they are willing to receive. You are truly blessed!'
The sacrament ended, but the vision of them before me lingered.
I thought more of what I received last night, that the distances in the celestial world are so much vaster than I tend to think of them. I know I move around there at the speed of my thought, so it doesn't seem so large. Here are some of my questions:
Q– How many inhabitants are there in the city of Enoch, who are translated and serving the people of this earth?
A– 1.5 million
Q– How large at the biggest length is Lake Beautiful, and how deep?
A– Approximately 800 miles long, and 5 miles deep.
Q– How long, wide and tall is the assembly hall on the western shores of Lake Beautiful?
A– 6,000 feet long, 3,500 feet wide, and 1,500 feet tall. It is very majestic inside. It is capable of holding all of the inhabitants of the city of Enoch, plus all of the holy angels at the same time.
These dimensions are so much vaster than are possible on the earth!
I also was thinking about how the fountain of living water continually flows. My impressions were that it had to do with the great amount of water pressure in Lake beautiful, where the water returns to the fountain of living waters, and the variation of the pull of gravity at the lake and at the fountain. Here is my question about this:
Q– Does the water from Lake Bountiful return to the fountain of living waters and shoot up into the air at the fountain, because of the variation of gravity from the lake to the fountain?
A– Yes! God can change the gravitational pull at the fountain to be a little lower than the gravitational pull at the lake, making the water at the fountain to project high into the air. This allows the water flow from the fountain of living waters to all three rivers, at whatever flow rate is desired. When the fountain stopped flowing, it was done by equalizing the gravitational pull at the fountain, and at the lake. There are no pumps in any of its flow, only a change in gravity. Also, the little bit of water that flows into the fields, gardens, and the stream going into the city of Zion is recreated and reclaimed from the celestial world at Lake Beautiful to keep the water level equalized. This way there is never a lack of the flow of water, for it flows eternally.
Q– About the wilderness area in heaven, recorded in Revelation 12:6–was this all prepared of God before Lucifer fell and drew 1/3 part of the hosts of heaven (see Revelation 12:4)?
Revelation 12:6–"And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days."
A– Yes. This area, the areas that you have visited in the celestial world, were all prepared ahead of the moment that we presented our plan to send our children to an earth, a telestial world, and provide a Savior for them to be able to return to us. When Satan rebelled, we prevented any of Satan or his followers from entering this beautiful wilderness area. This has been a sanctuary for our righteous and obedient children from that time forth. It was especially helpful for them during the days of conflict with Lucifer.
The wilderness area encompasses all of God's Loving Healing Hands area, the three rivers and the area into which these rivers flow, and all areas that you have described in your posts. All of this area is call the wilderness area in Revelation 12:6.
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-10-2017, Monday
"This morning starts a new week! I have been wondering what things I am going to learn about this week, which I have never known before! (see yesterday's journal entry from Heavenly Father during the sacrament).
I started by praying near the circling waters above the waterfall in Heavenly Mother's garden area. I asked my Heavenly Parents who were before me, to guide me in my questions. These questions were particularly about the numbers of God's children.
Q– How many approximate holy angels are there (these include healing angels, warrior angels, angels of destruction, proclamation angels, and all other types of angels with specific missions–all working in the celestial sphere of influence, all led by Michael the chief or prince archangel, and who report to our Heavenly Parents)?
A– 6,350 angels total.
Of these, I know that 2,633 are healing angels, of which 1,475 are currently in mortality.
Considering all of these angels working in replication, and now the 1.5 millions of Enoch's group also doing replication of their physical self, and the 144,000, this makes a lot of servants to help those who are the elect of God come to safe places, in a very dark world:
6,350 holy angels
1,500,000 members of the city of Zion
144,000 members of the high priests and high priestesses, 12,000 from each tribe of Israel.
1,650,350 total servants
See Jacob 5:61-62,70-72,75 below. This is talking about the servants of God, working hand-in-hand, side-by-side with the Savior, to nourish the vineyard (the earth) and gather the elect, prior to the vineyard being burned with fire. The natural fruit are the elect of God, for whom we are trying to preserve.
"61 Wherefore, go to, and call servants, that we may labor diligently with our might in the vineyard, that we may prepare the way, that I may bring forth again the natural fruit, which natural fruit is good and the most precious above all other fruit.
62 Wherefore, let us go to and labor with our might this last time, for behold the end draweth nigh, and this is for the last time that I shall prune my vineyard.
70 And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard sent his servant; and the servant went and did as the Lord had commanded him, and brought other servants; and they were few.
71 And the Lord of the vineyard said unto them: Go to, and labor in the vineyard, with your might. For behold, this is the last time that I shall nourish my vineyard; for the end is nigh at hand, and the season speedily cometh; and if ye labor with your might with me ye shall have joy in the fruit which I shall lay up unto myself against the time which will soon come.
72 And it came to pass that the servants did go and labor with their mights; and the Lord of the vineyard labored also with them; and they did obey the commandments of the Lord of the vineyard in all things.
75 And it came to pass that when the Lord of the vineyard saw that his fruit was good, and that his vineyard was no more corrupt, he called up his servants, and said unto them: Behold, for this last time have we nourished my vineyard; and thou beholdest that I have done according to my will; and I have preserved the natural fruit, that it is good, even like as it was in the beginning. And blessed art thou; for because ye have been diligent in laboring with me in my vineyard, and have kept my commandments, and have brought unto me again the natural fruit, that my vineyard is no more corrupted, and the bad is cast away, behold ye shall have joy with me because of the fruit of my vineyard."
Q– Approximately how many of the elect of God are on the earth now in mortality?
A– 10,500,000 live in mortality now.
There are about 7 billion children of God in mortality at this time. The elect of God constitute only 0.15% of the people on the earth now:
10.5 million / 7 billion = 0.0015
This equates to the ratio of 15 elect of God people for every 1,000 people in mortality now. These are candidates for bringing to the New Jerusalem, and ultimately to the Church of the Firstborn.
With the 1.69 million servants of God trying to rescue 10.5 million elect (not including those in the spirit world), that is the about a ratio of every one servant for every 6 elect people. That is why we need to replicate ourselves, so we can be with these elect all the time, or as often as possible, in guiding them and influencing them to be natural fruit, or the elect of God who are in good standing with God.
I next wondered how many total elect of God there are. Here is what I received, approximate numbers:
48 billion yet unborn to come forth in the millennium (almost all elect of God)
65 million elect of God who have died
10.5 million elect of God who are living
1,690,350 elect of God who are servants
48,088,190,350 total elect of God of all our Heavenly Parents children.
These would all be candidates for the church of the Firstborn, the celestial church in eternity.
I next wondered how many total children there have been of our Heavenly Parents. Here are the numbers I came up with:
420 billion total children of our Heavenly Parents
-145 billion who fell to Satan (I took 420B * 0.3333, assuming 1/3 part was really mathematically one-third.)
275 billion children who have or will come to mortality on earth.
Of these 275 billion who have or will come to the earth,
220 billion approximately have already lived**
48 billion will come in the millennium
7 billion are currently living on the earth
**The sources on the Internet say that 107-108 billion have already lived on the earth. I say 220 billion have lived, over twice what others estimate. I believe this is because they didn't realize the extensive civilizations that lived prior to the flood, Enoch's group of 1.5 million was a very small amount that were translated from this group who lived before the flood. I believe the entire earth was extremely populated before the earth was flooded, and before the earth was divided in the days of Peleg (see Genesis 10:25–"25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided;").
Of the 275 billion that I say have or will come to the earth in mortality, approximately 48 billion are the elect of God, or about 17.4% are the elect from all of those who come or have come to mortality (17 out of every 100 who come to the earth).
I then wondered how Heavenly Mother could have birthed so many children!
Q– Was Heavenly Mother able to birth her children in a replicated state?
A– Yes! Heavenly Mother did start having her children in replicated states, after she had children for a while.
I know of the quote from Joseph Smith to William W. Phelps that our system has been going on almost 2,555 million years (see here and here)."
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-11-2017, Tuesday
"This morning, I awoke realizing that tomorrow the smoke from God's temple will clear (see my journal entry on 9-21-2016). This is when the seven months are completed, as it was filled with smoke (see Revelation 15:8). In these seven months of earth's time, the smoke has stayed in God's temple while the seven angels of destruction initiated the destruction from the vials that they poured out on the earth. This is all described in Revelation chapters 15 and 16. See my detailed journal entry on 9-20-2016, given in my post 26. See also the timeline on 9-20-2016 when the smoke came into God's temple, and on 4-12-2017 where the smoke leaves the temple of God.
This is when there is a great earthquake, which opens up the spring of water in the Jackson County area. In heaven, Jesus suddenly comes to his temple and instructs the 144,000 and introduces them to the angels. Later, they are dismissed, and our Heavenly Parents instruct the holy angels too. This all occurs tomorrow I believe, on 4-12-2017. I don't know when the great earthquake in the telestial sphere will occur.
Q– When the angels of destruction poured out their vials of plagues on the earth, as recorded in Revelation chapter 16, was this event in the celestial, terrestrial and or the telestial sphere?
A– It was all done in the terrestrial sphere on the earth. The earth has been awakened to her terrestrial consciousness again, and has now received all of these plague instructions from the seven angels of destruction. She now will execute them in the telestial sphere, for all mankind to feel and experience. Mother earth has been given the commands and instruction from these angels, and she has the capability and charge to fulfill the plagues upon mankind.
For example, in the first plague, she, mother earth, can make now a sore to come upon mankind who worship the beast or his image (see Revelation 16:2). Mother earth will be aided in her execution of this plague by angels of God who assist her. This is the first plague.
In the second and third plagues, the sea and waters turn into blood. This is done my mother earth, assisted by the angels.
In the fourth plague, the sun increases its heat. This was initiated by you, Raphael, when you awoke the sun to a terrestrial level on 10-3-2016 when you blessed the sun to increase it's heat in due time. The vial poured out on the sun by the angel of destruction after this blessing will now be executed by the sun in the telestial sphere.
The fifth plague, the plague of pains and sores, will be executed by the earth too, assisted by the angels of God with specific assignments.
The sixth angel's plagues, of unclean spirits, will be released also by the earth and angels with specific assignments who allow false spirits into wicked men.
The last plague, poured out into the air, will be executed also in the telestial sphere by the earth, aided by the angels with specific assignments.
In each of these plagues, when angels are given assignments from their Heavenly Parents, the earth is poised, ready to act when given the word of command from the angels. All of these actions were initiated by the vials of plagues, poured out upon the earth in the terrestrial sphere of the earth.
Q– To confirm then, tomorrow on 4-12-2017, will the smoke of the wrath of God depart from God's holy temple, so that Jesus can come to this temple tomorrow, suddenly?
A– Yes! Both of these events happen tomorrow.
I reviewed what I had written up to this point in my posts (in my journals). I am excited to participate and record all of these events tomorrow. I am now kneeling at the riverbank which goes east, next to the fountain of living waters. Heavenly Father is on my left side, and Heavenly Mother on my right. They are answering my questions, and we are all there looking at their temple, which is still filled with smoke, on this last full day of it being filled with smoke.
I also confirmed that what I wrote this morning is true and accurate.
I might add too, that after I had transposed my journal entries above for this post, into the computer from my hand-written journal, I then felt very uplifted and at great peace for several hours. I took this as a confirmation for all that I had received yesterday about the numbers of God's children who were born to them, and the numbers of the elect, etc. This is a great revelation I feel I received! These are such exciting times for me to hear and receive such great truths, for which I am very, very grateful!"
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-12-2017, Wednesday morning
"Yesterday afternoon we went to the American Fork Hospital to see our 15th grandchild! It was such a pleasant time to be there! This is a very cute and pudgy baby girl, no name yet, 11 lb. 14 oz. A bit of heaven, for sure! My daughter-in-law was over two weeks overdue, and so relieved all went well.
Yesterday evening I felt I should be in place today near the temple in the celestial world at 8:00 am. I am there now in my replicated physical person. There is smoke still in the temple, and it is 7:30 am. I felt too that I would be an observer so that I could document in my journal, exactly what I perceived. I felt I would not be one with any active role in the events of this morning.
I also felt that I would be blessing the waters in the Jackson Country area on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 8:00 am. I believe this will be in the terrestrial sphere, probably deep in the earth and then later on the earth's surface. I believe too that I will do another blessing later in the telestial sphere of the earth, after a major earthquake in that area. I don't know when that would be, but it would be after the first blessing on the waters there. I think I should invite as many mortal angels as wish to attend to accompany me there on April 23rd at 8:00 am Utah time. I have no agenda in my mind at all, except that I will be going into the earth where the water will need to be directed to the surface of the earth.
In my morning prayer this morning, I chose to go to the lookout point in Heavenly Father's forest, which is north west of the temple, more elevated than the fountain and rivers. I have a good view of the whole area, including the north side of the temple, where the doors of the temple are opened towards the golden altar and the fountain of living waters.
Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother are both before me now in my prayer. They are both wearing beautiful robes with gold trim. This was the first thing I noticed when they came before me! Both are smiling and ready for the events of this morning. I was able to see the details of their elegant robes in my conscious mind: They wore white robes with gold trim around the hem of their robes at the bottom near their feet, and at the end of their arm sleeves, near their wrists. They also seemed to have some gold trim around their necks. Their capes also were full-length and trimmed with gold. Both of their robes were matching. They wore no sashes, no crowns–they were very regal and elegant, and so majestic!
The temple doors are open, and when I now look in there I see thick white smoke inside. I can only see in a few feet it seems, due to the thick smoke. (Note, I can somehow see these details even from the distance where I am located).
It is now 7:55 am. Still nobody is by the temple. We are off on the adjacent hill to the northwest, observing. My Heavenly Parents have now come to my sides, and are next to me. I have stood now and am between them. We are not visible I believe to anyone that will be at the temple.
My Heavenly Parents are also pleased that I am writing all of my impressions down, in real time, in my journal while my earthly body is next to my bed, while my replicated person is between them observing. I have prayed to be in-tune to my unconscious mind, which is observing all of these things.
It is now 8:00 am!
Uriel, the fourth archangel, now has come down from the sky, and is standing before the open door of the temple where the smoke has filled the temple. He is the same who spoke the words in Revelation 16:1, commanding the seven angels with their vials of plagues:
Revelation 16:1–"And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth."
Now he speaks again:
'The time has now come that the angels, with their vials, have fully completed pouring the wrath of God upon the earth!'
At that time, I saw in front of him the seven angels of God, clothed in their white linen, having their breasts girded with golden girdles (see Revelation 15:6–"And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles."). There were also the four beasts next to them, two on either side of the seven angels. These angels and beasts were all in a row, standing and facing the doors of the temple, and Uriel was facing them.
Uriel then spoke again to the seven angels:
'Return your gold vials to the beast who gave them to you.'
They each in turn then gave their vials to the beast who walked in front of them. He had a basket of some sort in which he placed each of their vials. It looked like this beast had the face of an eagle. When he collected the vials of the wrath of God, he went back in line, and said to Uriel:
'I have collected the seven golden vials of the wrath of God in this golden basket.'
Uriel said 'It is well!' He then turned to face the door of the temple, and then commanded in a loud voice:
'In the name of Messiah, who will soon come, I command the smoke to fully depart from the temple of God, which it has occupied for these seven months!'
Immediately the temple smoke vanished! It looked like the temple glowed again with luster and light from the presence of God.
Uriel then came in front of the seven angels and the four beasts that were in line, facing the door of the temple. They were just in front of the golden altar. He turned and also faced the temple. He then knelt down and then the seven angels and the four bests also knelt down, all on both knees. He then raised his hands high above his head and waited.
Next I perceived thousands of people come before the temple! They filled up the entire north front to the riverbank, and to the east, and to the west. They filled up every spot around the fountain of living waters, the golden altar, and off to the sides. They seemed to come in organized groups of 12,000 each, in twelve groups. The area on the ground seemed to expand too, for all their numbers were great. These were the 144,000! They soon were all in place, dressed in beautiful robes of white, before the north side of the temple. They too knelt before the temple where they were in their groups of 12,000 each.
Next I could see Jesus Christ, way high up in the sky above the temple, come down gradually to the spot between the northern open doors of the temple and Uriel, who still had his arms uplifted in prayer. Jesus came gradually down in a bright, glorious light coming from his person. He wore the same robes that Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother wore–with gold trim.
He came down to the temple and touched the ground that seemed to now be paved gold. He was so bright and majestic! He had a smile on his face, with soft eyes and a compassionate look. He spoke:
'Arise, my fellow servants!'
Uriel arose, and the seven angels and four beasts, and then all the 144,000 before him.
He then spoke again:
'I have come to the temple of my Heavenly Parents this day, and have invited each of you to this event. You, who are the 144,000, are here in spirit, for each of you are living in mortality. You have been called and chosen by me on Mount Zion last October 3rd, when I brought you there also. At that time, you also came in spirit, in your unconscious minds, as you have come today. You may each pray to the Father in my name, to have this experience brought to your conscious mortal minds.
You each have a great work before you! Your mission is to gather the elect of God who are scattered in every nation on the earth. I will give you directions where to go to find these elect people. They will all be in various situations. Your mission is to help protect and guide them, to preach my gospel to them, and to gather them to the center place of Zion, the only future place of safety, the New Jerusalem that will soon be built. I will go before you and direct you, each in your efforts.
Fear not, doubt not, and act on the Holy Spirit's promptings. Gather in the lost of Israel to my fold!'
At that time Jesus seemed to 'breathe' upon them. There was a spirit from him that spread and covered them all. The group was all uplifted and visibly moved by the Holy Spirit, which he breathed upon them.
At that moment, I saw myself whisked away to join all the holy angels in the air above the 144,000 gathered there. We too were in our positions, in our ranks: the seven male archangels were on the right or east side of Jesus in a line in the air, and the seven female archangels were on his left in a line. The healing angels, warrior angels, proclamation angels, destruction angels, and other special angels were in rows in order in front of Jesus in the air, behind the archangels. The four beasts remained in place, but Uriel and the seven destruction angels were now in the sky in their places.
When all were in place, Jesus spoke again:
'These who have gathered above you in the air, are the angels of God! They are all facing me in their ranks and order. These are also commissioned of the Father to protect, lead and bless the elect of God. These will frequently help you in your efforts to bring the elect to me.
You also will have the services of the people of Enoch, who are many. These well-seasoned and mature servants, are also working with you to rescue my elect who are lost in a dark and sinful world. All of you are my servants, and the servants of our Father.
I now give you my blessing! I will be next to each one of you, and guide you in this great labor. Time is short, and Satan and his hosts are well organized and strong. Go to with your might, and fear not, little flock, for you are mine!'
At that time the entire group of 144,000 suddenly left! The angels of God came down to occupy the space where the 144,000 had been. Jesus was still before us, in front of the temple doors.
Next our glorious Father and Mother came on the side of Jesus–Heavenly Father on his left, and Heavenly Mother on his right. They three were glorious beyond description, standing there in front of the angels of God!
Heavenly Mother spoke:
'My dear children, my dear angels of God! We are so pleased with your love and service to us. We are with you continually, directing and guiding you in saving our elect children on earth.
Whenever you question what to do, we will speak to you, always sharing our love for you and for our chosen child, from the elect of God. These are those who you are to bless and rescue–always in the way we direct you!
For you who are mortal: you have been translated and also transfigured, so that you may replicate yourselves as needed in your physical bodies, to do your work. Our protection will be with you continually as you labor, for you have power over the adversary, in all their numbers. You will be successful in this great labor of saving our children before the glorious return of our Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth again. Oh, we love you!'
Then our Heavenly Father spoke:
'My beloved children, my angels–Oh how I love you and trust you! I have labored in my wheat fields recently, and chosen those who are of our children who have shown by their obedience in their pre-mortal and mortal life, those who are our elect. These are those whom we will inspire you to find and help us rescue. Work with our other servants, the 144,000 and those of Enoch's group, in saving all of these elect children. Unfortunately, others of our children have demonstrated they do not want what we have to give them. Our elect are candidates for entering into our presence, as they prove faithful.
Your Heavenly Mother and I will be with each of you in your labors during our short but difficult season of rescuing the elect. Then you will be able to rest with us, in our beautiful kingdom in glory. I love you each, my beautiful angels!'
When done, each of us angels raised our hands in the air, some with their swords in their right hands.
Michael, the prince archangel, spoke:
'Father, Mother, and our Beloved Savior–we will act in quick obedience to all that you direct us to do!'
In unison, all the holy angels responded 'Amen!'
Then our Heavenly Parents and Jesus came among the crowd of angels and embraced each one of us! We waited until all had been embraced and talked to individually. This was a very fitting way to imbue the love of God into our souls, for without the love of God we cannot do anything.
When finished, we all left to our labors on earth. The fountain of living waters was still flowing, the temple doors were open and glowing light from inside, and heaven was certainly very heavenly today!
I finished writing at 9:15 am. I then started my day on earth. I felt I should write this all up in a post and share it now with the other angels."
Rick's Personal Journal Entry, 4-13-2017, Thursday morning
"I prayed this morning, at the lookout facing the temple, in Heavenly Father's forest, where I was yesterday. I was so blessed to commune again this morning with my Heavenly Parents. I asked if what I received yesterday morning was accurate, when we all had that great experience at the temple in the celestial world. Heavenly Father smiled, and I felt confirmed it was all true! I also asked if I left anything out of my journal entry. He gave me the direction that I should add one thing– that this was in fulfillment of Malachi 3:1–"1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts."
This event yesterday was in fulfillment of this prophecy. Jesus is the messenger of the Covenant to gather Israel from the nations of the earth, and has initiated, along with Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, the gathering of their elect, in this great and glorious message yesterday. This was delivered to all the gatherers, or the servants of God who work in his vineyard as spoken of in Jacob chapter 5 (see above in this post). I am so blessed to be part of this great work!"
