                                      PROPHET AND SEER

                                             PREFACE

I had occasion to meet Moses and take direction from him. It was sometime latter when I was
pursuing the Adamic language and I was looking into the old Egyptian, where I found a picture
of a statue of Moses. I was stunned. He had been a Pharaoh.

I read up on Akhenaten to see what we knew. Moses came to me and asked me to write his
story. It is by no means complete, that will yet come forth. It is enough to please Moses and
set the record straight.

Moses showed me much. One could get lost in all I saw. One must keep focused on Moses,
who he was and how he walked. What manner of man he really was. I have grown to
profoundly respect Moses and all the difficult choices he had to make in being a servant to "The
Christ".

The record stands. At times it disagrees with our current record. At times it walks in direct
opposition to our traditions. How we do love traditions and to "improve" history.

May you who read come to appreciate Moses, prophet, seer and servant of the Christ.



                                             FORWARD
        When I saw Moses for the first time I was taken aback by his short stature, small size and his
narrow head. He was so soft spoken he was hard to hear. One actually had to pay attention and
listen attentively. As time went on I was interested in learning the Adamic language. The old
Egyptian language, I felt, would lead me in that direction. In searching I came upon a picture of
Moses. It was the pharaoh Akhenaten. I was stunned that others recognized that this was Moses.

Over time Moses returned. He asked that I set much of the record straight and tell his story. This
is not an attempt to reveal the fullness of the law or establish the rules by which we should live.
This is Moses= story. As noted in the record, the Ark of the Covenant will be found with the full
record inside. This record will be translated. It will be haply translated and sent out to the people.
Because of the errors in future translations, more specific details were not given. It is more
important that the world accepts the new record, even though it will be poorly translated.
                                          THE STORY

Moses was born on the evening of December 8, in the winter of the year 1283 B.C. To understand
who Moses was let us go back to the time before his birth that we may appreciate who he was and
how he came to be.

    Let us go back into his genealogy. Moses was the son of Abram, who was the son
    Manasseh, who was the son of Joseph, who was the son of Jacob, who was the son of
    Abraham. Before the death of Jacob in the land of Egypt, Jacob brought all of his children
    together. When all the children were gathered together he pronounced a blessing on each
    of them. On Joseph he gave a double blessing. In the blessing of Joseph himself,
    because of his faithfulness to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who, by strict
    obedience, brought the children of God from a starving position to the land of Egypt where
    they grew and flourished. He was promised that through his seed would the Fathers raise
    up one who was a mighty and great one, who would deliver the people out of spiritual
    bondage, one who would allow them to return to the land of their inheritance, restoring to
    them both the laws and the covenants of the Fathers. Because of their sojourn in the land
    of Egypt, Joseph was told that the people would become a part of the people of Egypt; that
    they would grow into a large people. In doing so they would also incorporate into their
    religious beliefs many of the traditions of the Egyptians regarding their Gods. In many
    ways these traditions would lead them to stray from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
    for they would not adhere strictly to the laws that both Jacob and Joseph had taught them
    to obey. For this reason they would dwindle in unbelief. In remembrance of Joseph, the
    time would come when the God of their fathers would remember them and would deliver
    them that they may again become a mighty and distinct people, living and having the laws
    of the Fathers, if they would obey them. Joseph took much solace in this promise that his
    seed would be protected and be provided for in a land of promise. He was also promised
    that his seed would become a mighty army after they crossed the waters (but that is
    another story). This brought much solace to Joseph=s soul.

    To understand the story of Moses it is essential to understand the story of Egypt. Under
    the guidance of Joseph and with the permission of the Fathers, the land of Egypt stored a
    massive quantity of grain during the years of plenty. In the years of famine they thus had
    much grain to sell. Much of the wealth of the known earth came unto the Egyptian
    Kingdom, making the Egyptian Kingdom a place of power and strength, a place of wealth,
    a place of happening. It was a place where all the people of the earth would come to
    participate in the beauty, the money, and the grandeur, hoping that some of the wealth of
    Egypt would be bestowed upon them too. The Hebrew Nation had the advantage of being
    there first and with Joseph, being second in command to the Pharaoh of Egypt; he was
    able to bestow upon his posterity much of the wealth of Egypt. At a time when most of the
    people of Egypt became serfs unto the Pharaoh, Joseph=s people were protected. As a
    people they were financially solvent and in the end became quite wealthy. The average
    Egyptian became an indentured servant on the Pharaoh=s land. Thus was setup the
    structure, of who would rule Egypt and which set of laws would be obeyed. The Pharaoh,
    historically, served himself. He was his own God. He wanted all the wealth of the earth.
       -3-

He never had enough. No law existed that he was not willing to break in pursuit of wealth.
The Priests depended on the Pharaoh and the people for funds. They were responsible to
keep everyone happy. If everyone was happy, the priests prospered. The Hebrews were a
fun loving people who followed their own laws and traditions. Families were everything.
Prosperity, though important was not all consuming. The Hebrew Nation walked to their
own agenda. They were comfortable being different and distinct. As a matter of fact, they
quite enjoyed being with each other.

In keeping with the Hebrew’s polygamist past, as their wealth increased, each of the men
of the families took unto them several wives. Among the Hebrew people there were an
insufficient number of women for the Hebrew men to have more than one wife, though the
odd Hebrew male was able to marry two Hebrew women. In order for the Hebrews to
participate in the law of Polygamy and have other wives, they thus had to look outside of
their own tribes. In doing so they incorporated wives from the people surrounding them,
from the Egyptians, from the Sumarians, from the Ethiopians, and from the Libyans.
Joseph had given them strong commands to not participate in marriage with the
Ethiopians. This was a ban that to some extent lived strong among the Hebrews. Thus the
Hebrew Nation intermarried heavy with the Sumarians, the Libyans and the Egyptians. As
the generations proceeded the Pharaohs who had known Joseph died. The numbers of
the Hebrew Nation grew in strength both in population and wealth within the land of Egypt.
 The Hebrews refused as a people, to participate with the Egyptians in their priesthood.
The priests of the priesthood of Egypt, which the Hebrews called the black priesthood,
were very much opposed to the Hebrew people becoming a strong people. For the
Hebrews, according to their teachings and traditions, were not supposed to marry into the
black priesthood, nor participate in their feasts or celebrations. Though over time, they did
by nature of association celebrate many of their feasts. Instead, the Hebrews dealt much
with the priesthood of the Sumarians. This is the priesthood they recognized. Thus this is
where their offerings were paid. The Egyptians priests were not happy that all the Hebrew
wealth flowing to the Sumarians instead of them.

The black priesthood or the priest of the Egyptian House was greatly offended and greatly
concerned by the increase in numbers of the Hebrews mostly due to their large families. It
was the custom and the habit of the Egyptians to raise only up to two children or no
children at all and to have only one wife. There were only a few Egyptians who had more
than one wife. Their traditions were not as strong as the Hebrews and their desire for work
and the raising of children was not as strong as the Hebrews. Because of high incidents of
infertility among the Egyptians, their families tended to be small. Many of their women
tended to be barren. Because of these concerns the Egyptian priests approached the
Pharaoh of Egypt. Now the Pharaoh of Egypt, at this time, was concerned regarding the
growth of the wealth of the Egyptian priesthood, for the Egyptian priests owned large
estates. They had also built large temples as centers of worship. Much of the wealth of
the country that the Pharaoh did not control and that the Hebrews did not control was in the
hands of the priests. The Egyptian priests felt it was not wise to deal with these issues.
They felt instead it would be better to find fault with the Hebrews and to worry the Pharaoh
about the possibility of the Hebrews taking over the country due to their large numbers.
       -4-

The Egyptian priests of the Pharaoh thus spent much time with the Pharaoh persuading
him that the Hebrews were his greatest threat. In the end the Pharaoh agreed with the
priests that the Hebrews were a great threat to the land of Egypt. Because of their financial
strength, he was afraid to openly offend the Hebrews. The Egyptian priests therefore
cunningly put forth the suggestion that it would be a wise thing, to quietly pass a
moratorium instructing the Egyptian midwives, that any Hebrew male that was born should
be assisted to his death; therefore, very few male Hebrews would live. They felt that if this
was done then the exponential population growth of the House of Israel would no longer be
able to occur. The Pharaoh felt that this was a very favourable way of controlling the threat
of the Hebrews. He was concerned that if the moratorium became an open law that the
Hebrews would rise in rebellion which would be problematic because of the wealth they
controlled, bringing a split in his country and causing much consternation. Therefore, it
was secretly requested of the Egyptian midwives to quietly assist in the death of the
Hebrew males.

Now the Hebrews trusted very much in the Egyptians midwives, because many of the
Hebrew males had married Egyptian wives. The Egyptians were very proud of their
medical powers both in understanding the body and knowing what medicines to use. The
midwives were considered to be very proficient in their skills both in regards to assisting the
mothers and helping the children to survive. Because of the Egyptian expertise, there were
very few Hebrew midwives, only the very poor of the Hebrews would employ them as
midwives. Any one who had funds of any sort would by their very nature and
circumstances wish to have an Egyptian midwife.

Once this moratorium was passed by the Pharaoh and directions were passed out among
the midwives of Egypt, it was only a short time before the Hebrew people began to notice
that their sons were dying in alarming numbers.

It was in this circumstance that Abram became concerned when his wife, Myra, who was
an Egyptian, became pregnant with his son. At this point in time because of the concern
over the death of so many Hebrew males he went to pray unto the Fathers that he may
receive direction.

As he prayed unto the Fathers, he made a promise to the Fathers that the son who would
be born to him would be dedicated unto the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that he
would be taught to be a servant all of his days, and that he would be allowed to be a
servant of the Most High. In response to this covenant and promise made by Abram an
angel of the Lord appeared unto him. The angel told him to be at peace for the Fathers
had heard his prayer and his pleading before them. Abram was thus promised that the
baby that would be born unto his wife, Myra, would be a boy. His son would be the
Achosen one@ promised to Joseph so long ago for he would lead the Hebrew Nation out of
spiritual bondage and into their own land. He was told that his son would become the
Pharaoh of the House of Egypt and that he would stand mightily before the Lord for he
would walk with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that he would be a blessing and
       -5-

would be known throughout all the history of time. Great was his stature and great was his
wisdom before the Fathers. He was also promised and told to promise his wife that she
would be able to nurse and raise her son until he was of the age of twelve.

At the end of the vision Abram pondered long on what the angel had told him. It was not
until the next day that he approached his wife, Myra, and told her of her son that was to be
born, that he was the Achosen one@ promised so long ago. In order to protect her son
from the observing eyes of the Egyptians, Myra wore clothes that did not show that she
was pregnant so that no questions would arise, for she was of the royal household and her
association often was with the Pharaoh=s daughter and those of the royal household.
Myra did as she was commanded. She let no one know that she was pregnant, received
no care from the Egyptian midwives or the Egyptian Physicians, and arranged in the end
for a Hebrew midwife to come assist her in the birth of her son. There was also the issue
of Abram=s other wife, Jochebed, who was the mother of his other two children, Aaron and
Miriam. As in many polygamist households there some feelings between Jochebed and
Myra over the birth of Myra=s son, especially since he and not Aaron, Abram=s first born
son, was the chosen son and thus the focus of Abram=s attention. But Jochebed did
assist Myra in the birth of the son and in protecting him from anyone knowing that he was
around until he was approximately six months of age.

At this time Myra, Jochebed and Abram worked together to build an ark for the baby, that
he might be set free on the river as the angel had instructed, for the baby Moses was to be
carried to where the Fathers wish that he should be. Because of Myra=s contact with the
royal household, she was aware that there would be a feast to the Gods of the Egyptians at
the temple complex at Thebes which was built next to the royal palace. Two days prior to
this festival, the ark was finished. The ark was taken north of Thebes and was placed in
the river. It was the prayer of Myra and Abram that the ark would be carried to the
Pharaoh=s daughter. Miriam was asked to travel along by the side of the river and to
report in the end as to what happened. It is perhaps sad that Jochebed was hoping that
the ark would be taken out to the middle of the river and would float passed the temple-
palace complex and no one would notice, for Jochebed was hoping that others would find
the child in the ark.

At the rising of the sun the Pharaoh=s daughter went into the temple, the priest presiding
that day promised her although she was barren, the Gods of Egypt would provide for her a
son; that he would grow up and would lead Egypt to great victories and rule all over the
world; that he would be wise and be known throughout all the ages of time. Thus it was
with a glad heart that the Pharaoh=s daughter went down to celebrate the feast by the
river, beside the temple and on the palace property where she lived. In the process of
celebrating the feast, one of the party looked out and noticed the small ark floating down
the river. Remembering what the priest had promised her that day, that she would have a
son given to her through the river of life, she sent a strong swimmer out to obtain and bring
in the ark. As the ark was brought to the shore she walked out into the waters, which the
Pharaoh=s daughter never did. She opened the ark and found there the baby Moses.
       -6-

With great joy she lifted the baby out of the ark. Screaming with joy she ran to the temple
to the presiding priest, to show him the baby that the Gods of the Egyptians had provided
for her.

The priest was caught off guard. He did not know what to say. He had to accept that the
predication he made regarding the Pharaoh=s daughter had come true. Therefore, he had
to both accept and acknowledge the child to be the Pharaoh=s heir and give it an official
blessing to this end, which he did. The Pharaoh=s daughter left the temple to continue the
feast celebrating her glad treasure that she had found. The baby had been without food
for several days and began to cry. Realizing that the babe was in need of nourishment
from a mother, she turned to the ladies of the royal household and enquired of them if any
one knew of one with royal linage who could possibly nurse a child. Miriam spoke up and
said, AMy mother was not too far along and she lost her child and she is wet. Surely she
could nurse him.@ The Pharaoh=s daughter immediately sent for Myra. Because Myra
was of the royal house and of the Pharaoh=s linage, she was deemed worthy to feed the
child and care for him. When Myra came into the presence of the Pharaoh=s daughter
and Moses, the child immediately recognized his mother and quieted down. The
Pharaoh=s daughter handed him to Myra. The child immediately went for the breast and
began to nurse. With great joy Myra nursed the child. Myra remembered well the blessing
and promise of Abram, that she would be able to raise her own son and that he would be
Pharaoh of Egypt. The Pharaoh=s daughter instructed her to take the child home and to
raise it and to care for it. She was to bring the child to royal functions and when the child
was deemed worthy to be taught, he would be brought to the Pharaoh=s house, for he was
to be raised and taught there by the Pharaoh=s scholars, advisors and priests.

Myra took the child home and was able to raise it as her own, openly. Even in his youth
because of his stature before the Pharaoh and his promise to be the Pharaoh of Egypt,
being also a descendant of Joseph he was at times maligned and maltreated by the other
family children. Aaron and his sister Miriam were especially harsh in their feelings towards
Moses. Because of this contention there was a division in the household of Abram. Aaron
being the older son, and the son of his Hebrew wife, wanted the birthright of Abram and the
Fathers. Aaron felt that because Moses was given the right to be Pharaoh, this birthright
had taken away from him as well as his right to be the Pharaoh. As the story of Moses
unfolds, often we will see these feelings constantly resurface between these three children
of two mothers.

As Moses grew in years, he became more and more aware of the feelings of his brother
and sister had towards him. Moses was much smaller in stature and was much less
aggressive, putting him at a distinct disadvantage with regards to Aaron. As Moses
approached the age of seven and Aaron at this time was ten, going on eleven. Aaron was
very forthright and at times very rough with Moses. Myra watched these changing
interactions of the children. As Moses passed the age of seven, she had him spend more
and more time in the palace of Pharaoh. Both the scribes and the priests taught Moses of
the traditions of the Egyptian people and of the world around him. Because of the wealth
       -7-

of Egypt, many of the scholars of the known world would come into Egypt to study, learn
and write. Because Egyptian was the language of commerce most people coming to Egypt
were seeking employment and were fluent in the Egyptian language. They were able to
teach the young man Moses about their countries and places far away, teaching him of
people and places that Moses had not seen. They brought to him the tradition and the
customs of the people where they came from. As a young lad, Moses took in all of these
customs and traditions, in wonderment. The priests of the Egyptian people taught him of
the priesthood of the Egyptians. As Moses grew in years, the Pharaoh eased the mandate
governing the death of the Hebrew males, for the Egyptian priests had become painfully
aware that the Hebrew women had learned to do midwifery and were now preserving their
own children. There was no easy way to openly oppose or prescribe the death of the
Hebrew males. The mandate was quietly rescinded and the Pharaoh=s concern turned
again to the Egyptian priests and their large temples, their vast land and their great control
of the hearts and minds of the Egyptians.

The thoughts of both the Pharaoh and his natural father, having both men around him, had
great influence on the young Moses growing up. Many times Abram prevented Moses
from being drawn into the priesthood of the Egyptians. Because Moses was the son of the
Pharaoh, at appointed feast days and at appointed times in his life, he was required to go
to the temple and participate in the feasts and in the services that were there. To a youth,
these celebrations were very captivating. Often his heart would follow all that he saw.
Abram would have invigorating discussions with him about the one God, trying to keep
Moses= heart in balance.

It was at one of these feasts in the twelfth year of his life that greatly affected the course
that Moses would walk the rest of his days. It was at noon on a warm day. The priest
showed Moses to the Holy of Holies and left him there. Moses contemplated the Gods of
the Hebrews, the Gods of the Egyptians, and the Gods of the Sumarians, and the Gods of
the many lands that were around him, that he had all come to know of. In his heart he
was pondering which of these Gods was really the God of the earth. Which of these many
Gods was the true God that he should show respect to and worship? As he was pondering
these things in the Holy of Holies, an angel of the Fathers appeared, and called unto him,
and said AMoses why are you troubled in your heart?” Moses looked up and became
aware of the wonder that was before him. As he became comfortable with the wonder that
was before him, he spoke unto the angel as one man speaks to another. He said unto the
angel, AI have been taught of the Pharaohs, of my fathers and of the scribes and priests
and the scholars of all the Gods of the earth, and they are many. My heart is drawn to the
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but I know not in my heart which God is true and whose
direction I should follow, for all men tell me to walk a different road. I am young and I am
inexperienced.” The angel of the Lord told him that the God of the earth, the creator of all
that he saw, was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In order to keep the covenant
made with his great grandfather Joseph, so long ago, that from this day forward the angel
would walk with Moses. He was cautioned that often Moses would not see the angel but
the angel promised that he would always be with him. The angel would speak to him and
bear witness to him of the truths that he would learn. In all that Moses was taught, he
       -8-

would know that which was good, what he should remember, and what was from the
Fathers. The angel again bore witness of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and then
quietly disappeared. Moses was awe struck by his experience. It took him some time to
recover. As the priest returned to him, he told the priest what had happened. Great was
the worry on the priest=s face as he listened to the story. He told the Moses that it was the
heat of the day, that what he saw was not true, the words he heard were not true, and the
angel he saw did not exist. Moses argued with him, but only briefly, for he now knew that
the priest was not a servant of the one true God.

He pondered his experience as he went back to visit with his father, the Pharaoh. Telling
his father that which he had seen and that which the angel had told unto him. The
Pharaoh acknowledged to him that in the days long ago, the Egyptians once worshiped the
one God. It was the same God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But over the years the
people had desired to worship the many Gods from other lands. The Egyptian priests had
brought to them many gods so that every one could have their own god to worship. Thus
the worship of many great gods had evolved among the Egyptian people. The Sumarians
had brought their gods, and the Ethiopians, the Libyans, and the people across the bay
have brought their gods. The Egyptians of course were encouraged to worship all these
gods. The Pharaoh told Moses that he believed Moses. The Pharaoh said if he wished he
would support Moses and that they could begin the return of the one true God, bringing
back the laws, customs and traditions that their forefathers had observed. It was a
dramatic shift from the current practices of the Egyptians. Such a change would be
troubling to the ministers and priests. It would potentially greatly affect the financial futures
of both the ministers and priests. He said AMy days are numbered and I am old and I am
weak but I will support you and will work with you.” This gave the young lad Moses much
strength.

Several days later Moses met up with Abram as he was coming to the palace for a feast.
As he spoke with Abram, Myra and Jochebed he told them of the experience that he had.
Great was the joy within their souls as they heard Moses relate to them the story of the
Holy of Holies of the temple and the angel that appeared to him.

Jochebed knew that these blessings would also affect her own children, for good. The
Egyptian royal house had not responded well to her children because of Aaron=s large
stature, for he was very intimidating to the smaller Egyptians. Jochebed had observed
often how Aaron overpowered the royal Egyptians in their sporting activities. Aaron was
schooled well by Abram. His tongue was smooth. Aaron was fluent in both the Hebrew
and Egyptian tongues. Moses was not fluent in the local Hebrew tongue, and did not know
the nuances of their tongue or their traditions. Aaron was thus thought well of by the
Hebrews and feared and hated by the Egyptians.

Miriam because of her beauty was always welcome in her youth. As she came of age, she
grew in stature. Miriam did not want to marry a little Egyptian, thus she was gradually less
welcome among the royal household. She did have strong feelings regarding men. She
       -9-

learned well from her mother. Miriam did not like the way Abram treated her mother. She
was determined to be treated better. She did not like the concept of having a husband to
govern her. She thought much like Aaron that they should rule. As often happened in
royal households, the brother and sister would be co-rulers for it was given Miriam and
Aaron were to rule and govern the earth and it=s people. Miriam did like to celebrate and
did not appreciate any constraints on her chosen life style.

In her youth Jochebed had envied Myra and Moses. Jochebed had encouraged much
friction between Moses, Miriam and Aaron. Now in her more mature years Jochebed was
trying to soften her children=s hearts towards each other, but often Miriam and Aaron=s
hearts would not be softened. They saw all that Moses had, all that was around him, for all
the wealth of Egypt that would be his. They looked at his thin stature and his smallness of
size and did not respect him.

So on this telling day, began one of the greatest changes within Egypt that would occur
within that millennium for Moses desired to bring back to the people the original God of the
Egyptian people, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Later on that day at the feast, the
Pharaoh, Abram and Moses sat down and had a chat for awhile. The focus of their
discussion was the future of Moses. It was decided for Moses= protection that he was to
say no more of the vision that he had beheld in the temple. He was to wait until his
seventeenth year and between now and his seventeenth year he was to study and to
prepare; to learn the laws of the various people and customs of the various people; to
search out the laws of the Fathers; to understand the laws and the conditions under which
the Egyptian fathers once lived; to understand the temples and how and why their temples
once were made, and to put all things in readiness for his seventeenth birthday.

It was decided that on his seventeenth birthday he would begin a co-reign with the existing
Pharaoh. His father would watch over him for the next five years. During that period of
time they would try to transition in the return to the one true God. It was decided that they
would have many discussions between now and that time. They were to speak to no one
else, and all the plans were to be kept secret, for if the priests and ministers were fully
aware of all the plans that were being formed that Moses= life would be in danger. Thus
plainly, Moses would never live to see his seventeenth birthday.

So the boy grew in form and stature before God, learning the ways of the Fathers, learning
the laws of the Fathers; learning the laws of Abraham; studying the history of Abraham;
studying the record of both Abraham and Melchizedek, learning laws of the Fathers as
taught by Noah; knowing of the covenants and the promises made to those who would
wish to become the Children of God.

The young lad Moses spent some considerable time in the Palace with the Pharaoh and
with the teachers of the Pharaoh, with the scholars and the priests at all times and places
learning the wisdom of man. He also spent considerable time with Abram, his natural
father. Moses was not aware that Abram was his natural father until just before his
      - 10 -

thirteenth birthday. Moses knew only the feelings of the heart he had for Abram and Myra,
his wife.

It is most interesting how Moses discovered who his natural father was. He was having a
serious discussion with Abram regarding the one true God, and His concern over His
children here on earth and God=s expectations of His children regarding obedience to His
laws. During the discussion of the relationship we feel to our Fathers in heaven Moses=
heart burned within him. He looked at Abram and asked, AWhy does my bosom so burn
within me?@ Abram noted it was his feelings for his creator. Moses looked at Abram and
said, AIt could not be so@, for it was very different from the feelings the angel aroused.
Moses looked directly at Abram and asked, AAre you my father?@ Abram looked down
and said AYes.” Abram was taken back as Moses jumped at him and hugged him. Moses
was now so much more at peace. He thanked his father Abram for his forthrightness with
him. Moses knew that this was a confidence he would cherish. Abram was now to be his
most intimate confidant.

Because Abram and Myra were people of the court, they would be at the palace for feasts,
they would be there for special occasions and they would be able to spend time together.
All these interactions had a profound influence on Moses= life. Through Abram he was
introduced to the priest, Jethro. Jethro was considered a priest of the Sumarians class.
He was a priest of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, knowing the old ways. It has been
intimated that Jethro followed other Gods. Moses states most plainly that Jethro worshiped
the one God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the “I am”, the creator of the earth.
This was the God he worshiped and the God he served. Jethro received his priesthood
through his fathers, even unto Shem the great high priest. Jethro held the lesser
priesthood and the keys of the higher priesthood. Jethro held true and faithful all of his
days.

Moses was taught of the one God, and because of his experience within the temple walls,
he knew assuredly who the God of the earth was. Often in his discussions with the other
priests of the Pharaoh and the scholars Moses would express his feelings and his views.
The Egyptian priests were not unaware of Moses= feelings for the one true God.

As he approached his seventeen year, the year where the Pharaoh had promised that
Moses would be in his joint rule, there was some concern of the Egyptian priests and the
ministers of the Egyptian government regarding the current Pharaoh. Moses had been
persuasive in dealing with his father, the Pharaoh, in persuading the Pharaoh to return to
the old ways. The Pharaoh being much in age and years and having seen the wisdom of
man and seeing the wisdom of the Fathers, knew the difference. In his heart the Pharaoh
knew which doctrines and laws were true. Because of this knowledge the Pharaoh leaned
much towards Moses. The priests and ministers of the Pharaoh were alarmed by this. The
priests and ministers were gravely concerned over what would happen to them and their
future financial situation.
       - 11 -

In Moses= sixteenth year, the Ethiopians had begun an incursion on the southern border of
Egypt. Because of their fierceness in battle they had easily marched many miles into
Egypt. They overcame the outposts and headed into the richness of the land of Egypt.
They were impressed with the wealth that was there and had taken much in spoils. The
Egyptians and the country of Egypt itself had become extremely rich over the years. There
had been many migrant or immigrant workers into the land Egypt, many of these looking
for a way to benefit had joined the Pharaoh=s army. They were chosen for their size and
baseness of character. They had been hired as mercenaries. Thus most of the army were
mercenaries employed because they were considered more expendable than the natural
born Egyptians and they were sent to the forefront of battle. Alas, Egypt was not their
home and they had not much to fight for, for many lacked family or possessions for which
to fight for or protect. Most often the men had little of their own personal wealth. The
generals who were the Pharaoh=s servants had much wealth and much to protect. The
soldiers in the army looked and they could see plainly that the Ethiopians were walking
away with the wealth of Egypt. Wealth that, even if they did defend Egypt, they would not
be given a share of. So they saw little use to fight and preferred to run, thus preserving
their lives. Because of this, the Ethiopians had become encouraged for some of the
mercenaries even joined their army that they also might receive a share of the plunder.
Thus the Ethiopians continued to march into Egypt. The further into the country they
came, the more the army ran. There was great concern in the capital city, for the
Ethiopians were close.

The ministers and Egyptian priests were looking for a leader that would lead the army and
change their future. There was no such man available. Moses was of small stature for he
was five feet four inches and weighed one hundred and twenty eight pounds, smaller than
many Egyptians and not the man to bravely lead them into war. But the priests of the
Pharaoh conspired with the government ministers. They conspired within their hearts and
said A Let us persuade the Pharaoh to send Moses to head the army. For if he is a great
and wise man, as he pretends to be, and young and strong, surely he will lead our forces in
victory.@ The other choice would be to use the old Pharaoh or one of the ministers.
Though several ministers wished to be Pharaoh, none wanted to lead the army, for the
chances of survival were really slim. The old Pharaoh was not of the temperament to go
himself, for he knew he would not give the army courage. The Pharaoh knew that they
would not follow him and knew his life would end on the battlefield.

But he feared for his son Moses too. But what else was he to do. To do nothing, would
within a few weeks, allow the Ethiopians to be sitting at his door and plundering his palace,
plundering his capital city. The only option that he could perceive was to send the young
Moses. The Pharaoh decided to let him prove his worth and see what he could do.
Moses, so slight of built, turned to Pharaoh and said, AI will go and we will prosper. I know
not how but the one God said he would watch over me, and the angel said he would go
with me. So surely we will prosper, for my end is not yet.@

Moses asked for some bodyguards to go with him and proceeded to the encampment of
       - 12 -

the Egyptian army. On his arrival at the general’s tent, no one was impressed. They
looked at him and saw a boy slight of built. They plainly asked him, AWho art thou to give
us direction? And why should we listen to you? And why should the men follow you?
Surely you will lead us to our death!@ In a sense Moses spirit was dampened; his heart
was broken. They had set a tent aside for him. He went into it and went over into the
corner and prayed unto the Fathers. Moses had done that which they had directed him to
do. He was now here and his time was now! As with most of us, he prayed mightily. His
heart was sincere, but the answer came not right away. Actually, it went on for hours,
seeming like days or weeks. He felt rejected and neglected. As time went on his faith was
wavering, and just as the point where he was willing to give up hope, the angel of the Lord
appeared to him. And looked at the young lad and said, AWhy question thee that we
would help? Where is your faith? You remember the promises of so long ago. The
promises set forth. You have lived the laws of the one true God. You have walked
honourably before men. You have not gone with other women. You have kept yourself
from many of the feasts, from the other Gods. In all ways you have been obedient. The
Fathers have sent me, and I am to walk with thee, and I will show thee.@ By this time
Moses was face down on his carpet in his tent. He lifted his head and said, APray Lord
how”? As the angel stood before him, he said, ALook.@ And Moses looked. As he looked
he saw the armies engaged. He saw the Egyptian army move around and come from
behind. He saw maneuvers that would bring him victory. The angel said, AThis is what
you are to do tomorrow. And every night when you go to sleep I will come unto you and I
will show you what to do on the morrow, so that you may lead the men to victory.@

AIt is now late and the men are asleep. But the leaders of the men will be up early in the
morning and they will be in the tent planning the day. Sleep now and in the morning go in
with your plan. Be strong and firm. I will go with thee, and I will go before thee. Others
have been sent and we will soften their hearts towards thee that they will listen and will do.
 Once they have seen your success, then they will follow. Now sleep for tomorrow
comes.@ Moses retired for the night. In the morning he went to the tent of the generals.
He laid out the stratagem of that day for the battle. They were skeptical but they could see
that it could possibly work and nothing else had. Thus they followed his directions. They
stationed the men exactly as Moses had told them. By the end of the day, the victory was
theirs. The Egyptian army was celebrating. And on the battles went until they had pushed
the Ethiopians right to the border of Ethiopia and Egypt. Each day the Egyptian army
becoming stronger and bolder.

Moses had approached the generals. The generals had approached the men. If they
gained victory, they would get a percentage of the spoils recovered from the Ethiopians. It
was far more then they normally got paid; much more! They could see it was for their
benefit to fight, to stand, for there was cause and reason. And they did! Once they had
reached the border of the Ethiopians there was a tremendous desire to quit. To set the
outposts where they were, and let the borders go back the way they were.

But Moses was troubled in his heart and for he saw that the Ethiopians would regroup and
       - 13 -

come again. He could see the downside… the loss of life and property, the destruction of
homes and fields. He found that future unacceptable. He turned to the generals and said,
ANo, we must pursue them, into their own country, into the royal city.@ The generals were
quite taken aback by this. They said, AThe city is strong and it is surrounded by rivers. If
the Ethiopian army gets there we will never be able to get them out. Our men will grow
tired. When we are lazy and tired they will come out to conquer us.@ Moses said, A Let us
make haste. Let us go this way, around, beat the army to the city; surround the city and
keep the army out@. The generals said, ABut we have never gone that way. It is a land of
many snakes@. But Moses had a plan that the angel had told him. They brought animals
whose main enemy is the snakes, and they were pets. All the Egyptians have them to
keep snakes out of their homes. Moses said, ALet us bring these pets. Let us set them
out in front of us. Let us care for them well so that they will come back home to their nest,
which are the baskets that they live in. Let us clear the land ahead of us and let us march
forward@. And this they did. Doing a forced march they were able to reach the Ethiopian
capital ahead of the Ethiopian army. They surrounded the capital. The Egyptian army
knew the prize was theirs.

The Ethiopian King saw what had happened. He had come back early, ahead of his main
army with a small cohort of his army, he saw the great Egyptian army around him. He had
been out maneuvered. The Egyptian army had been aroused in anger and fought hard.
Many of the Ethiopian King’s courageous men had died. The Ethiopian army was tired.
The Ethiopian army was outside of his city. The food was within the city. He had lots of
food but no army. The army was beaten and still on its way back. They would see the
Egyptian army and would scatter. In viewing his situation the Ethiopian King pondered
what to do. He had heard of the general Moses, this great young lad. He had heard much
of him, the young man who would one day be Pharaoh. In times past they had met at
banquets. He was impressed with Moses= honesty and integrity; so he set an envoy out to
address Moses.

The envoy was stopped at the camp, questioned and brought to Moses= tent. As the
envoy sat in Moses= tent they relayed the wishes of the Ethiopian King, for he did not want
the destruction of his city nor harm to his people, nor the pillaging of his family and
kingdom. He asked Moses, AWhat shall we do?@ I propose to surrender to you, but that
we do it with dignity, and because of your age and unmarried status, I would ask that you
take my daughter in marriage. Then we will become your servants and we will also
become your people; thus you will deal kindly with us because we are of your people and
family, and my daughter will be in your home and in your bed.” Moses pondered the
proposal and could see the wisdom in it. Abram was not there nor was Jethro: the men he
had grown to learn from, to trust and to value their judgements. In his youth he trusted in
himself. He could see the goodness of the covenant and the importance an alliance of the
kingdom of Ethiopia and the kingdom of Egypt. For Moses had found the Ethiopians brave
in battle; fierce in defending their home. He felt the Ethiopians would make a good addition
to the Egyptian army and would give them strength and courage. They were men who had
families and would defend them. He saw the wisdom there. So he sent the envoy back to
the King. Moses said, AI will accept your proposal. We should meet and resolve the
       - 14 -

matter.@ The meeting place was set up. A tent was erected. The Ethiopian King came
out and with Moses went up to the tent. They made a covenant between one another that
Moses would marry the Ethiopian king=s daughter, that she would be his first wife, that he
would care for her and her people, to nourish and strengthen and protect them. The
covenant was agreed to and the deal was set. The King went back to announce it to the
city and Moses went to announce it to his troops. They returned the next day, the King
with the princess and Moses with the generals. Moses took the Ethiopian princess to wife.
 An Egyptian priest performed the ceremony.

Moses was not prepared for what happened next, for the Egyptian army ran amuck, they
were not as well schooled as he had hoped. They were not as trained as he wished. And
although he had lead them in victorious battles and although they had been successful at
his hand until this point in time, rather than be the brave army that he expected of the
Egyptians, they became a mob. They robbed and they pillaged. They would not listen, nor
obey. Great was the grieving of Moses. They did spare the King=s house and the King=s
court. Thus Moses saw the baseness of man in a manner that he never expected to see.
Because of his youth and his immaturity and lack of experience he did not handle the
situation well, for he knew not what to do.

Over the years he would look back and grieve much of what occurred under his
stewardship, his inability to control the troops. Their unwillingness to listen in victory. The
next few days as he walked through the palace and the capital city he looked long and hard
at what was done and how it was done. He went back to his tent and his wife, where she
was grieving greatly. She watched him call unto the Fathers and grieve to the Fathers,
grieving greatly over what he had seen, grieving over the nature of the people that he was
in charge of, his inability to restrain them, his inability to set them straight. The sadness,
and the grieving, and the death and destruction that he saw. This one single experience
had a tremendous effect on the young lad Moses and sealed the fate of the Egyptian
nation. For the Father=s Guardians of Justice noted all the evil that was done. It would
have to be atoned for.

He saw that unless the people could understand the one true God (as they were not taught
to love the one true God, that they were not disciplined in their belief), if they could not
understand the statues and the teachings, then there is no way that he could take them
into battle without seeing a repeat of what he had seen here these last few days. He
realized that he would be a Pharaoh in a country of immigrants; in a sense a country of
foreigners who knew not the one true God. In a country where the Priests encouraged the
worship of many gods, and they preferred no constraining laws; they preferred nothing that
would stop them from the basest of behaviour. He could plainly see the result of an army
unschooled. It was with great sadness that he marched with the army back to the capital
city and made the report to his father.

The Pharaoh was encouraged that Moses was so brave and successful in resolving the
problem with the Ethiopians. He saw the wisdom of the covenant of marriage and the
       - 15 -

protection that the marriage would afford, and encouraged the young man in what he did.
As the days of celebrations and reporting went on and Moses spoke to Abram, Abram
looked very concerned. Abram reasoned with Moses that he should remember also the
people that worshiped the one true God; that if Moses was to unite the kingdom that he
would have to also remember those people of the Hebrew nation. That if he was to draw
the north and the south together into one great nation, he would have to remember both
nations, in addition to the country of Egypt and draw them all together. Moses took his
counsel well and pondered it. But first on his mind was to work with his father, the
Pharaoh; to make the transition; to work with the ministers and priests of the Pharaoh; to
change the temples and to establish the order of the one true God. And then there was the
day to day care of running the kingdom. For he wanted to return to the old ways, the old
seed, the old cattle. Treat all with respect and honour. But first they must return to the one
true God; for his father was old and the time was short. The actions of the army still
overwhelmed his thoughts and feelings.

Time passed quickly. His wife bore him a son and then a daughter, then another daughter;
then his father was sick and dying. As he looked at the time and he saw the laws he had
changed and the feelings that had changed within him, he pondered the future. Here his
father was dying. The Egyptian priests were restless; for they were not happy with his
attempts to change the priesthood of Egypt. They were not happy with the teachings of the
one true God, and they did not want Moses to redesign the temples. They were unhappy
that he was building new temples here and there. There was much friction in the
government, for the ministers and their wealth were next. Moses was forthright about that!
The Egyptian priesthood was now already feeling under siege. With his father=s passing
the priesthood was in almost open rebellion against Moses.

He looked to the leaders he had followed in his youth, the scholars, the priests, his
advisors, taking their council and listening well. The priests too had taught him from his
youth, reasoned with him. But those who held the Egyptian priesthood did not want to
change and greatly resisted change. They would not change the gods they worshiped nor
would they be willing to change the laws and statutes they followed. They were unwilling to
give up their feast days and their celebrations. They refused to see the wisdom of
constraining the people and trying to prevent the people from doing that which brought
them such great pleasure. The Egyptian priests where very open, they said, ALook at the
lands that we have acquired. Look at the money that the people have given us. If we go to
the people and tell them they cannot do these things anymore they will not give us this
money. They will not come to the feasts if there is not improper behaviour, as you deem it.
They will go elsewhere@.

Jethro=s solution was to set up a second city and to start up a rival priesthood. Moses
could see the advantage of that. He turned to Abram and Aaron and the leaders of the
Hebrews and he said, AWhat would you wish that I would do in this situation? For you
know the one true God.@ Again they counseled him that the Egyptian priesthood would not
follow him; that they would not give up their lands and their wealth; that they were unwilling
       - 16 -

to tell the people the truth. They were unwilling to criticize the people for it would make the
people angry with them. Because of his inexperience, Moses had trouble grasping the
concept that the people would not be willingly to do good! He turned to the scholars and
he said, AWould not people willingly do good?@ And of course the ministers and the
scholars did not wish to criticize him or disagree and said, AYes it is the natural character
of man to wish to do good.@ And they encouraged him that if he set up a rival priesthood
and set things as they should, the people would have choice, and when people had choice
they would choose good over bad; they would choose that which is right over what they
were doing. Moses concurred.

Jethro and Abram saw the problems that must by necessity arise. Moses was young for he
was just twenty two years of age. Many sought to have his ear, flattering Moses. Moses
followed the flattery. Abram and Jethro knew much would be learned by his experiences
here. They thus united in their stand in opposition to the government=s advisors. Moses
father, the Pharaoh, was gone. The decision must be made.

A place was chosen where a city would be built. The work was begun on a new palace
and on a new temple, for there was still much in the treasury. There was much tribute
coming into the land of Egypt. There were many countries that the Egyptians did rule over,
and all of them in their wisdom sent tribute to Egypt. They had heard of Moses; they had
heard of the army, they had heard of their victory over the Ethiopians. It had given the
Egyptians courage. So the other countries were quiet and sent tribute. With the tribute
money that was coming in, Moses, as Pharaoh, began the work of building his new city and
the building of many temples.

As he began to organize the new Egyptian priesthood, he brought in Jethro and Abram,
and other Hebrew leaders to assist him in this work. This by necessity set up rivalries
within the palace. Everyone was taking sides. There was much open rebellion. There was
much talk about the death of Moses. Because of Moses= interest in the one true God and
building temples and teaching the people the ministers noticed he lacked interest in the
army. For by its actions, the army had brought him much sorrow and pain. There was
enough wealth in Egypt he felt to build his capital city and run his country.

He was not interested in an empire or running an empire. He was not interested in forming
treaties and alliances. His interest was not in the far off world, but in the matters of the
heart and home. For his love of Egypt and it=s people was strong, and his desire was to
make the nation strong. He felt that only by making a nation strong within would it be
strong without. He began to work in earnest with the teachers of the people, hoping to
persuade them, and to lead them. It would take some time for the city, temple and his
palace to be built. He spoke with Jethro and set him to be the priest at the temple at Mount
Sinai. Jethro had much influence there for his people were close. Arrangements were
made. The temple was built. Moses went there to visit, to pray and to seek after his God.
He found the temple a place of solace. It was a smaller temple so it was finished first.
Jethro=s priests had come and dedicated the temple. They talked of the laws, the laws of
      - 17 -

the Fathers. They dedicated the Holy of Holies and Moses went in. It was during one of
these visits at the temple of Sinai that Jethro bestowed upon him the lesser priesthood of
the Fathers, and bestowed on him the keys of the higher priesthood. He spoke with his
friend the angel who came from the Fathers and taught him the law. Learning both from
the angel and from Jethro he came to understand the laws that governed the earth. After
receiving schooling from Jethro and the angel Moses would go back to Egypt wishing to
incorporate these new doctrines and laws into Egyptian culture.

As he sent out the new priests and the teachers to teach the people, they were rebuffed.
They reported to Moses their experiences. The Egyptians as a people were not interested,
though many did listen and believe. Because Aaron was of the Hebrew culture and
customs he was therefore able to explain it in a way they could understand, and so the
Hebrews were more receptive to the new teachings and new laws.

Moses drew in while continuing to work on his city; establishing the new Egyptian
priesthood; finding places of worship; and raising his children. He now had one son and
four daughters; his young son was nine. The new capital city was nearing completion. The
new priesthood was established; places of worship were built; the temples were being
completed. But many Egyptian people would not even listen.

He approached Jethro and said, AIn my youth you had approached me and spoke of the
wisdom of marrying one of the northern half of the kingdom to draw the country together@.
Jethro said, AYes@. Moses said, AI am looking for such a person@. And Jethro proposed
his unwed daughter. This was an ideal solution because Jethro was well respected among
the Hebrew people as the high priest of the one God. It was under his direction that many
of the temples, especially the temple at Sinai were designed and built. By marrying
Jethro=s daughter Moses would thus draw unto him the Sumarians and the Hebrew
people. Together with his Ethiopian wife he would have the two sides of the country united
as one people. This to Moses was an ideal solution in uniting together the government and
religion of Egypt. Plans were set to order and a royal wedding was planned. Out of
respect to Jethro, Moses had made plans to travel to Jethro=s place of residence to pick
up the wedding party, then to go to the temple of Sinai to perform the wedding ceremony.
In retrospect, many could question the choices made. In the end this would be a mistake
that his enemies within the royal court would use against him.

The Egyptian ministers encouraged the wedding at Sinai, because it would place him
outside of Egypt and away from the most loyal part of his army. Moses would be with the
royal procession. This would leave his palace and his home unguarded and under the
control of the royal household, and under the control of the ministers of the government.
The plans were set to order. The procession was arranged. At this point, in time the
Pharaoh=s first wife did not wish to travel with her husband to the second wedding.
Instead she stayed in Egypt with her daughters and her only son. Moses gathered the
procession together of his friends who believed in the one God and set out to marry his
second wife. While he was in the process of traveling to Median, to Jethro=s home, to
       - 18 -

finish the gathering of those who would be in the wedding procession, in particular
Zipporah, there arose a rebellion and insurrection in Egypt.

The ministers of his government took control of the government and the army, establishing
themselves as the heads of the government. In their plotting, they had proposed that
Moses= first born son be placed on the throne as Pharaoh, as a pretense to keep those
loyal to Moses from rising in rebellion. Because of his youth, being only nine years of age,
they felt he would be easily controlled. He was also affected by his mother, thus the
ministers felt he would follow and work with them under their direction to change the course
of the history of Egypt back to the way it was before Moses. A delegation was sent to
Moses to advise him of what had happened and make a proposition to him.

The proposition was that if Moses would marry Jethro=s daughter as his second wife and
Moses would stay there and live with Jethro and his family, then Moses= family that was
left behind in Egypt would be preserved; and that Moses= only son would be placed on the
throne.

The young boy would be subservient to their requests and wishes, and then perhaps in that
subversive manner, the ministers could control and run the country of Egypt. They felt that
Moses would accept this proposition because Moses would not want his children and wife
killed. They were deliberately playing on Moses= fears, and the ministers felt that the
feelings against Moses were strong enough among most of the people that the people
would not rise up in rebellion against the ministers. Moses had closed down the Egyptian
temples and had withdrawn the funds to them, thus the feasts had ceased. There was
much dissatisfaction among the common Egyptian because their routine, their form of
living and their lifestyle had been interrupted. Many of their pleasures and excesses were
gone. There were no feasts. They felt that they had not prospered while Moses was in
charge of Egypt, only worked more.

The Hebrews were more agrarian because of their lack of military training; though they
were wealthy they did not deal in armaments or in the military schooling, thus though there
were many people, they were not considered a viable force to come against the new
government. The ministers felt very safe in the approach they had taken to be rulers of the
people. They felt that the people would support the ministers in what they had done. They
felt that Moses was not aware of the alienation of most of the common people. Because of
the isolation of the Pharaoh in the Egyptian kingdom, the Pharaoh was not aware of the
feelings of the people. The information that the Pharaoh was being presented with was not
accurate. Moses was not aware of the duplicity that was being played towards him.
Therefore as instructed, several ministers went out in a procession to catch up with Moses
and present the proposals to him.

The Egyptian ministers arrived at Mt. Sinai shortly after Moses= marriage to Zipporah. The
ministers presented to him the conditions of the new government of Egypt, looking for his
approval or disapproval, to indicate what Moses would do. Moses was caught quite
       - 19 -

unaware by what had occurred in the short time he was gone. He turned to his father-in-
law Jethro for counsel and advise. Both he and Jethro went to the temple, to the Holy of
Holies, to seek of the one true God what their course should be. How would the Fathers
want him to respond? The answer came loud and clear. Moses was to stay with Jethro
and his family to learn of the royal priesthood; to participate in the royal priesthood; to be
schooled in the ways of the priesthood; to understand the common person, the priest class
and his interaction with them; to raise a second family and to raise through his loins a
priesthood class that would honour the one true God. Moses did as he was directed.

Moses approached the ministerial procession that had come from the new government and
told them that he would accept the terms that they had imposed upon him. He would stay
there with his father-in-law in Median, he would raise a new family there. He covenanted
that he would not return to Egypt and would not start a civil war, as long as his son was
able to sit on his throne and be the Pharaoh of Egypt. The promises given from the new
government were that they would protect and guard the young Pharaoh so that he would
be safe and Moses= family that remained in Egypt would be safe; that Moses= wife and
children would be taken care of and that they would still be members of the royal
household thus the dynasty would continue. The ministers then left and returned to Egypt.

Upon their return the ministers were quite excited to hear that Moses had accepted the
conditions of the new government. They immediately set about to ignore the new
priesthood, changing or closing the temples and ceasing to pay the teachers of the religion
of the one true God, returning to the customs and feasts of all the Egyptian Gods. They
opened again the shops that sold the clothing and the idols and the materials necessary for
the people to worship their gods; setting back in motion the economy as it once was.

The young lad who was now on the throne of Egypt was quite accepting of the new
conditions. His mother had counseled him to do so, for to openly oppose them was certain
death. The ministers were able to rule and govern for many years. As the young boy
grew in stature and form he was taught by the priest, by his mother and the scholars of the
things that had been and once were. As he grew into a young man, he looked upon his
seventeenth birthday with great anticipation for he would be able to take over the throne of
Egypt. The priests were very aware that in his more mature years, often how he had
sought to learn more of the one true God, about Moses, his father. Much he could not ask
the scholars and priests. He had learned more from his mother. They noticed he was
spending more time with the Hebrews scholars. He had invited Jethro and Jethro too had
come and taught him of the one true God.

He had gone to the temple and unlike his father, he had not had the spiritual experiences
of his father, yet he felt within his soul the burning to do things that his father had done.
Those that he made contact with told him what kind of man his father was. He took great
joy in all that his father had done. Thus as he matured in years, the Egyptian ministers and
priests began to fear him. They felt that as he reached the age of seventeen and was then
able to take control of the government that he would most likely turn on them and make
       - 20 -

many of the same moves that his father had made, but this time with more wisdom; this
time with more cunning; this time with more understanding. Upon looking at the things his
father had tried to accomplish, the young lad had realized that his father had reached too
far. He was trying to run a government of the country. He was trying to run an empire, to
manage an army, to change the religion of the people, by taking away their feast days,
taking away their celebration and their means of employment, by building a new city that
many of the people felt was foreign; by bringing in foreigners from another country to setup
the priesthood; while trying to raise his own household. All these things were organized by
one person. He saw the mistakes that his father had made and was planning to take a
more cautious approach. The Egyptian priests being aware of this and having palace spies
that kept them abreast of the plans of the young lad, they counseled the Egyptian ministers
to plan for his murder. He was able to ascend to the throne and was able to rule for about
nine months before they were able to, with a blow to the back of the head, kill him. This
ended Moses= Pharaohnic Dynasty. After much infighting one of the ministers took over
as Pharaoh in 1243 B.C..

The news of his death spread quickly throughout the country of Egypt and to Median and to
Moses, bringing great sorrow to him. He was now approaching his forty-first year. The
Egyptian ministers had the men in place. They had the lines of power set up, and because
there was no major change in the government the people were accepting of it for they had
declared it an accident The people were looking for the feast days. They were looking for
no change in taxation. They were looking for things to be as they had been and the new
government provided that. For them security and financial stability was most important.
Many people did not openly question the death of Moses= son.

Moses was married to Zipporah. She bore him two sons and three daughters. He took
great joy with the two sons that were born for him. Moses often wished to be with his first
born son. Upon hearing of the death of his son he became greatly sorrowed, and for a
while was recluse. It was hard for him to accept that fact that his first born son was dead.
He was troubled over the manner of the death, for the angel had told him it was murder, for
Moses was shown those conspirators committing the murder.

Now Zipporah was not happily married to Moses. She had not married other suitors
waiting for the right husband. She looked very favourably upon being Moses= wife.
Because of her position as Jethro=s daughter and being Sumarian, she expected to be the
number one Queen. Zipporah felt that the Ethiopian Queen, Moses= other wife, would be
moved to second spot. She was very distraught when the government of Moses was
overthrown. She felt like she had been tricked and betrayed. Zipporah was often quick to
put Moses in his place. Being that she was larger in stature than Moses, only made the
situation worse. She could easily out work him at shearing time. AWhat can you do?@ was
often asked of Moses by Zipporah. It was a most difficult situation.

As in times past he went to his father-in-law, Jethro, they went to the temple at Sinai where
they went into the Holy of Holies. During their time in the Holy of Holies, Moses’ angel
       - 21 -

appeared again unto him. Moses asked him plainly what was the manner of his son=s
death. The angel spoke most plainly to him that his son was murdered by those who were
now in charge in Egypt. Moses was very angry that they would breach their covenant and
kill his son. The angel cautioned him in his anger and said the time was not yet. If Moses
would go back at this point in time and lead out the Hebrew people, the Hebrew people
would not be willing to leave their lands and their homes. They would rather stay where
they were, for they had prospered and become a wealthy and great nation within the nation
of Egypt. The angel went on to explain that the plan of the Father was to prepare the
people to leave the land of Egypt. In order to do this the Fathers would put the Hebrew
people under bondage of taxation. The leaders of the current government of the Egyptians
would fear them; the government would teach a hatred of the Hebrews; the ministers and
Pharaoh would alienate the Hebrews from the royal household; would speak against them
and would encourage fear and loathing of the Hebrews. By so doing and allowing those
who were in the government of Egypt to exercise their own personal vendettas on the
Hebrew people, the Hebrew people would be prepared at the right time to leave the land of
Egypt. But the time was not yet and would not be for some time.

It is the nature of man that it takes time to change their hearts and to put them in a
situation where they were willing to leave that which they love so dearly. Moses= heart
was calmed, and although he was still troubled, he felt at peace and accepted the will of
the Fathers. The angel said, AGo ahead and learn, for there is much that you have
learned but there is even much more to learn. It is important that you learn these things
first. When the time is right, I will come again and let you know when it is time to go and
get your people@. Moses and Jethro thanked him and left the Holy of Holies.

Moses went back to his wife Zipporah, continued to raise his family and to learn and to
study, and to learn the ways of the shepherds; to learn the ways of the various trades; to
understand how men did things with their hands; for as a Pharaoh he did not have those
experiences. He listened to how the people thought; to what the people would tell him, to
how they felt. For Moses, as the Pharaoh, had not listened to those things. As he spent
more time with the Medians, as he pondered the things he did, he realized that he did not
understand people and their natures. The next years would give him his best education on
being able to lead an unruly house out of the land of Egypt.

As Moses and Jethro left the temple, being just in his forty-fourth year, the high priest of
the temple advised them that they had received word from the new government of Egypt,
that Jethro and Moses would no longer be welcome there at the temple of Sinai, and that
they should not return. That information was both difficult and hard for Moses to take, for
often in the temple in the Holy of Holies he had found solace in speaking with his angel.

He headed back with his father-in-law to the land of Median and raised his family. He did
not return to temple until the Fathers commanded him. This was approximately eleven
years later, when Moses was out in the fields. Moses often would go out in fields and
wander in the mountains, sitting on rocks and pondering about who he was; what he had
       - 22 -

seen and observed among the people, the information they had given him; what he
understood of other countries and cultures, of history and forms of government. He
pondered in his heart how to setup a new country, a new government; to re-establish the
one true God and to restore again the priesthood to the Hebrew people.

It was on one of these wanderings into the high parts of the mountain near where he lived
that he noticed the bush was on fire. It did get Moses’ attention, for before he had only
seen such in the Holy of Holies. He could not understand why here on this mountainside
he would see such a display of the power of the one true God. As he approached the bush
the angel of the Lord appeared to him and spoke with him again; telling him what to do,
and preparing him for the return of the Hebrew people to become the House of Israel;
speaking to him plainly of the conditions of the Hebrew people. Moses had often heard
travelers come through, telling much of the pain and suffering that the Hebrew people were
going through, of the sadness that was upon them; of their inability to form a rebellion
because they had no arms and no ability to make arms. They were in servitude to the
Egyptians; and of their heavy taxation, the closing of their temples and their churches and
their places of worship. The Hebrew leaders were abused, and they were denied their
ability to worship their one true God. For the Egyptians wished to stamp out that religion
once and for all; for they did not want that religion again in the land of Egypt. They felt that
only by eliminating it among the Hebrew people would they be able to rid the land of any
such thoughts, ideas or traditions.

As this information was presented to Moses, Moses in sincerity looked at the angel and
explained to the angel that he had neither the charisma nor the language to lead the
people, for he was soft spoken and would not flatter them; he was plain with them and they
did not like that. They did not like his plainness of speech, nor did they appreciate his
honesty in dealing with them. On presenting this to the angel, the angel said, ABut your
brother Aaron is such a man; and the people like him because he flatters them. He has
their traditions. He walks in their ways, and they like men who are like them because he
will not make them change.@ So Moses was told to send for Aaron. The angel told him
how he would demonstrate to Aaron, his brother, who Moses was and that the message he
would receive truly was from the Fathers, that the time was now, when the Hebrew nation
should leave the land of Egypt and go and found their own country, and to return to the
land of their inheritance, the land that had been given to their fathers, Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob. The nation and the land had been given to them so that they could raise a people
in righteousness to the one true God, who in all ways would make covenants and keep
them; who would honour the one true God and become the children of God.

As the angel commanded him, Moses did. Moses sent for both Aaron and his sister. His
father had since passed away as had his mother. It was hard on Moses for he had missed
their funerals for, to keep his covenant, he had to stay out of the land of Egypt. But his
messenger went out and would returned with Aaron and Miriam and the elders of the
Hebrews.
       - 23 -

Once Moses received his message from the angel of the burning bush, he went back
home. He sat down and spoke to Jethro, explained to him the commands that the angel
had spoken to him and the tasks that the angel had set before him; explaining how Aaron
his brother should be sent for, spoken too, and have the plan laid before him; to find out if
he was willing to walk with Moses, to have Aaron be the spokesman to the Hebrew Nation.
As he laid out the plan Jethro spoke plainly of all he understood. Jethro was aware of the
promises made to Joseph, for he was a keeper of the records. He was aware that the
fullness of the gospel was supposed to be restored through Moses to the Hebrew Nation.
He had read Moses= History from the Creation to the Present Day.

As Jethro spoke on those things and the elements of the gospel that he was aware of, he
came to the law of circumcision. Moses was aware of the law; he was aware of some of
the peculiarities of the law and some of the problems of the law. As he sat down with
Jethro and was listening to the history of the law, he was able to gain new insights as to
what happened and why. Jethro took him back to the time of Abraham, for Abraham was
the high priest and was ordained and given the Lesser Priesthood and the keys to the
Greater Priesthood under the hand of Melchezedik, King of Salem, who was the son of
Noah, his name being Shem. Shem had been introduced into the mysteries of the gospel
and the temple ordinances there at the temple in Jerusalem which had been built under
Noah=s direction. Part of the requirement was that the husband and wife be circumcised
and accept this as a token, indicating their willingness to become the children of God. For
the letting of blood at the time of circumcision was to be done in remembrance of the
Savior who would come; who would shed his blood in Gethsemane, that man may again
return back to the presence of the Fathers. Although it was a deeply personal mark that
only the husband and wife would see, it was considered to be a mark of those who would
be the children of God. That each of them would be circumcised, both the male and the
female, that the foreskin would be removed from both the male and female. As sometimes
would occur when this surgery is done at the temple (for that is where the surgery is done),
Abraham=s wife Sarai came down with an infection. Sarai had been barren up to this
point. After the infection had ensued, she continued to be barren. In her heart, Sarai had
always felt that the reason for her barrenness was the circumcision ordinance that she had
gone through with Abraham at the temple under the hands of Shem and the temple
workers.

Even after the birth of Isaac and the growing of Isaac she was still increasingly angry. All
her life she had been barren, and many women had used this against her. Her feelings
were strong and they were hard. In her last days she was separated from Abraham for she
no longer wished to associate with him.

Isaac was aware of these feelings of his mother. When it came time for him to take a wife,
he with his wife went to the temple and were circumcised together; all went well. Out of
their union two sons were born Jacob and Esau. Esau refused the law of circumcision.
Jacob fled for his life. Jacob went to a land and chose wives of another man, those not
chosen by his parents or grandparents; wives that worshiped other Gods. Because of his
       - 24 -

association with these women who worshiped other Gods, both through his wives and their
handmaidens, which bore him children, there were continual problems in his family unit.

Perhaps the most glaring act, that offended the Fathers, was when the King wanted to take
Diana for wife. Her brothers insisted that they all be circumcised. This was of interest,
more so because the children of Jacob, the sons, were not circumcised but Jacob’s sons
required those of another faith, those that did not believe in the one true God, be
circumcised. When Jacob’s sons had them at a disadvantage, Jacob’s sons slew them.
This was grievous in the sight of God.

Even young Joseph, because he was not yet married, was not circumcised. He traveled to
the land of Egypt and eventually brought the Hebrew Nation there. Because there was no
temple and he married into the Egyptian royal families, then again the law of circumcision
was not lived. The law of circumcision was not lived from that day, down to the days of
Moses.

Since Moses and Jethro were talking about the restoration of the fullness of the gospel,
this became a critical issue. The angel commanded him that he should take his wife and
sons to the temple of Mt. Sinai and there be circumcised in the preparation for the return of
the House of Israel. He explained this command to Jethro. Jethro understood. He
counseled him to speak to his wife and children and explain as best he could, the history of
circumcision, and the importance of doing the circumcision and walking in obedience
before the one God. Moses did as he was advised by Jethro, and approached his wife and
his two sons and explained about it. As his oldest son was soon to marry, the wedding was
scheduled to occur at the temple at Sinai. Moses and Jethro thus lead the wedding
procession to Mt. Sinai.

As they approached the temple at Mt. Sinai, Moses had a confrontation with the priests at
the temple. Moses explained that the one true God had sent him; that he was traveling
forth unto Egypt and that he planned on returning to Mt. Sinai with the Hebrew people.
The time had come for the Hebrew people to be free of the Egyptian nation. Because
Moses spoke plainly with them, the priests backed off, for Moses had come with the
wedding party and with his wedding party were many of the men of Media and they were
well-armed. Moses in the name of the one true God and with the men at his side cleared
the temple of the Egyptian priests. He told the Egyptian priests to never return, for he
declared that the temple site was now sacred to the one true God. That it was his, for it
was built on the original floor plan when Moses was Pharaoh. Once the temple was
cleared of the priests, Moses had Jethro begin the sacrificial cleansing of the temple.
Once the proper sacrifices were done and the temple was cleansed, the temple was
dedicated again to the one true God. When this was done, guards were posted.

Beginning with Moses and his family, so that the circumcision rights may be done in order,
the circumcisions began. Moses= wife, Zipporah, was both a healer and a midwife among
the Median people. Because of this she had done much work in healing and was
       - 25 -

authorized under the Median law to do circumcisions. As she had been ordained under the
hand of Jethro, she began by doing Moses= circumcision. Moses did feel that she enjoyed
doing the circumcision a bit more than she should. Once Moses was circumcised she did
the circumcision on her oldest son who was to be married. This circumcision did not go so
well; there were a lot of problems with bleeding. Within her soul, Zipporah=s heart began
to arise in anger towards Moses that she would have to put her son through such an
operation. She was so angry that she took her son’s foreskin and threw it in Moses’ face.

When proper order was again established, it was Zipporah=s turn to be circumcised. At
this point in time Zipporah rebelled and encouraged her daughter-in-law to-be to also rebel.
 Many angry words were spoken and many accusations made. Jethro was unable to
persuade his daughter to calm down. Moses was unable to persuade his wife to
reconsider. Both of Moses= sons, being of age, (for they were both over the age of
seventeen which was considered to be the age of an adult), rebelled with their mother and
sided with her; they stood in direct opposition to their father. This was a very difficult time
for Moses both because he was still in the process of healing after his own circumcision,
and because his family was in open rebellion; none would listen.

Moses went to the Holy of Holies of the temple and called unto the Fathers. As he called
unto the Fathers, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him again and spoke with him. As in
times past, they conversed as one man unto another. Moses explaining his frustrations
with the people, with his family, his wife and children and questioned again whether or not
the House of Israel could be established, and whether the Hebrews would listen to him.
His questions centered on, AIf my own wife and children, whom I have walked with these
twenty-one years, will not listen to me and will not follow me why should the Hebrew nation,
who=s tongue I do not know, for I speak only the Egyptian tongue, for the Hebrew customs
and traditions are foreign to me, why should they listen to me? And at this point in my life,
follow me?@ The angel of the Lord was plain with him. For he spoke to Moses plainly,
saying that it did not matter who would come. It did not matter what they looked like, how
they dressed or which language they spoke. The Hebrew Nation would respond to the
voice of the servants that the Fathers sent. If they are not of the Hebrew Nation wishing to
become members of the House of Israel, they will not respond to the voice of the servant
the Father sends. It is that simple! He went on to explain that often as people here on the
earth, we look at our form and stature. We look at our language and our customs. We
look at our nuances and our feelings. We feel that people reject us because of what they
see outwardly. Such is not the case if those being brought the message are of the House
of Israel. For the House of Israel knows the shepherd=s voice. It is the voice they listen
for. It is the voice that stirs within them. It is the voice they will listen to. The angel of the
Lord said, “I will have to relate to you sad information. Because of the rebellion of your
sons to you, the priesthood of the Fathers cannot be given to them. For no man who
openly opposes the servants of the Fathers from doing the work of the Fathers can hold or
have the priesthood. For them to hold the priesthood or carry the priesthood would be to
set the foundations of the heavens against themselves. Such is not allowed!” Thus Moses
was told that through his children and his descendants that the priesthood which he
carried, which was the power and authority of the Fathers, could not be passed on for his
       - 26 -

children were in open rebellion against him. The ban was to be enforced for four
generations.

“Although your heart is heavy”, the angel went on to say, “be assured that out of the land of
the Hebrews, the Father will raise one who is righteous, and who will be like a son unto
you, who will walk with you, who will be your son, that you may teach these things unto the
people, that he may follow in your stead. It is not your fault that your children rebelled. It is
necessary that all children have agency, to choose which way they will walk, and whether
they will walk with the Fathers or whether they will walk in rebellion to the Fathers. That is
always their choice.” The angel went on to tell him that although some of the guards of the
Median, at the command of Jethro, would remain here to protect the temple, he should be
aware that his wife and children were at this very minute planning to return to the land of
Median. Moses would have to walk alone to the land of the Hebrews. For this cause has
the message gone forth and your brother Aaron will start on the morrow to come here to
greet you. So when the healing is done, Aaron will be here, and you will be able to
proceed to the Hebrew people. Moses’ heart was heavy as he proceeded back to his tent.
On the morrow his wife arose and speaking to Moses, she explained that she and the
children and the wedding procession were going back home to Median for the marriage to
be done there. They would not walk with him to the land of Egypt. Many unkind things
were said that do not bear repeating.

Thus Zipporah left with the children and the wedding party and returned to Median. Jethro,
the high priest, set guards around the temple to protect it, until such time that the Hebrew
people would return from the land of Egypt for he knew that which Moses spoke was true.
The Hebrew nation was coming! Jethro then too returned to his home land. As the angel
had spoken, four days later Aaron showed up with a group of the elders from the Hebrew
Nation from the land of the Egyptians. Moses was glad of their meeting as they embraced
each other for it had now been close to twenty-two years since they had parted. Moses
explained to Aaron the things that the angel of the Lord had shown him, demonstrating
unto him the power of the one true God, encouraging Aaron to try the same signs for it
would indicate that they were sent together as servants of the one true God. The Hebrew
elders watched as they stood there. As they watched they spoke among themselves for
truly they knew that a deliverer had come.

A small group of the elders hurried back to the land of Egypt, so that the elders of the
Hebrews would be advised as to what was occurring and to expect the return of Moses
soon with Aaron to counsel them on what they had discussed and what was the desire of
the Fathers. Moses spoke plainly to them of the ten plagues; how each of them would
occur and what would happen, and how they would culminate with the death of the first
born sons of all the land of Egypt, reticent of what had happened to Moses= son. The
Fathers, in their wisdom, would demonstrate to both the Hebrew nation and the Egyptian
nation that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was the Creator of the Earth. All nations
would know that the God of the Hebrews was the one true God. The Fathers had decided
at this time to demonstrate such, that in the world there would be no question who was the
Creator and which God was the one true God, but not all people would listen, for all men
       - 27 -

have agency. There would be no question when it came to the confrontation of the gods of
Egypt, which was the mightiest nation on the earth, and the God of the Hebrew, which
were a heavily taxed people, a people under burden, whose God ruled the earth. Knowing
who ruled the earth was important. It should determine whose laws should then be
followed.

Moses at this time had planned originally, that he would introduce the law of circumcision,
and that he would circumcise the elders of the Hebrew Nation. After seeing the reaction of
his wife and his family, he backed down from that desire. He felt that until the people were
out of the land of Egypt, until they returned to the mountain were the temple was, until they
had had the experiences and knew who the God of Israel was, he felt that he would be
asking too much of the people and their leaders, and thus they would not follow him.

At the time when Moses was with his brother Aaron, and his sister Miriam, and the elders
of the Hebrew Nation at the temple of Mt. Sinai, Moses showed them two records. First
was the Book of the Covenant. It was a small book. In it he had written the covenants that
the people would make if they were to become the children of an upright God or the
Children of Israel. The second, which he showed them was the longer record. Moses felt
that much of the problem that he had before with the (Egyptian and Hebrew people)
evolved around the lack of a proper history. A history that identified the Hebrew Nation, for
who they were, why they were where they are, and what made them different from other
people or nations. Moses during his sojourn with Jethro, had taken the time to write the
history of the Hebrew Nation. Moses started with the creation of the earth and took it forth
to his day. This was a monumental task. As he presented copies to the elders of the
Hebrews he explained to them that this was their record and their history. They should
make copies of it and pass it out to the teachers so that the teachers might take it to the
people and the that people may learn. All the people would have the record of their
history. He wanted also that the Book of the Covenant, which is the covenants that he
would ask them to make at Mt. Sinai on their return, be copied and given to all the fathers.
For any covenant to be in force the people must have the opportunity of reading the
covenant, understanding the covenant, and wanting to make that covenant before arriving
at the temple. He wanted to make sure before the people arrived at the temple at Mt.
Sinai, that they knew well in advance what was expected of them, what covenants they
would be asked to make, and to be sure in their hearts they would be willing to make such
covenants. Then they would become the Children of Israel. This record was given to the
elders of the people and they began their trek back to the land of Egypt.

Now the trek back to the land of Egypt was a short trip of several days. They had been
preceded by the Egyptian priests who had worked at the temple at Mt. Sinai. The Egyptian
priests had gone to the religious leaders there in Egypt who had quickly gone to the new
Pharaoh and the government ministers, letting them know that Moses had returned. The
priest did raise an air of excitement because they reported to the Pharaoh that Moses had
shown up with an armed band of men, an army; and that Moses was coming back to
recover the land of Egypt. Of course this sent alarms through the ministers of Egypt and
the Pharaoh. They were preparing for a man known to be victorious, much older and much
       - 28 -

wiser, who was coming back to claim his rightful throne.

In a similar vain, the elders of the Hebrews had received runners, from the elders that were
at the temple of Mt. Sinai, that Moses was returning; that there was a plan in force; that the
people would be able to leave the land of Egypt; and that they would leave Egypt with most
of their property and they would be able to go to a land of promise. The conditions and the
taxation under which they were living would no longer be upon them, and that they would
be free of the burdens of the Pharaoh. This gave the Hebrew Nation much hope and joy!
With much anticipation they looked forward to the return of Moses with Aaron and the
Elders of Israel.

During the time when the Pharaoh had ruled Egypt, several changes had taken place.
Once Moses= son was killed, the Pharaoh turned back to building palaces and temples
according to the old patterns, especially, new pyramids. Returning to the laws of the
Egyptian Gods which allowed for the lack of concern for the earth and nature. Again, the
Pharaoh was God and only his laws had to be obeyed. Thus was the earth abused, and
the animal and plant kingdoms corrupted, all this in the interest of greed! As he was
expending his interest on these internal issues, the nations in the far-off reaches of the
kingdom began to rebel against the House of Egypt. The ministers of Egypt and the
Pharaoh were no longer concerned with the far-off places and so began a drawing-in. The
tribute money began to dwindle. It was easier to extract funds from the Hebrews than
foreign nations; for the Hebrews were not an army nor trained for such. All people knew
that he who was Pharaoh of Egypt was an usurper, and the respect that they had for the
Pharaoh of Egypt was greatly diminished. With their diminishing respect came the
diminishing tribute, putting a financial squeeze on the Pharaoh of Egypt. The Pharaoh was
not very happy with his lack of funds. With the wealth of the Hebrew people at his
disposal, he continued a system of taxation that relieved the Egyptians of heavy taxation.
The Pharaoh=s feelings were that the Hebrew Nation should be glad for his protection. He
was unsure whom the army would support if he did not have the funds to pay them. So it
was a matter of economical survival for the Pharaoh. He had to have the money for the
army, he wanted the money for his excesses, and the only groups with money that he did
not have were either the priests or the Hebrews. If the Pharaoh went after the priests, then
the Pharaoh=s days would be numbered. The safest bet was to focus all the attention on
the Hebrew people and relieve them of their wealth.

As Moses approached Egypt, runners came out from the Pharaoh, both as spies and to
evaluate what was coming, for they had heard reports from the priests and they were
concerned that a great well-armed army was marching against them. They were relieved
to see Moses and Aaron walking with the elders of the Hebrews. There was no army, for
the Median army stayed with Jethro at the temple of Mt. Sinai. There were courtesy
runners who went to greet Moses and Aaron. Their interest was only with Moses, to
welcome him to the land of Egypt, to acknowledge that he was their friend, to see what his
intentions were, to drink with him and to eat with him and, if possible, befriend him. As
each runner returned to Egypt, they let the Pharaoh know what was going on and what
       - 29 -

they had learned. The Pharaoh set up a meeting through them whereby Moses would
come and meet with the Pharaoh. It was of the utmost importance that Moses, being the
former Pharaoh, be treated with the respect of royalty even though he came without an
army. Moses= wife and daughters were still in Egypt. They were members of the royal
household and over the years had won the friendship of many people. All were waiting to
see how the new Pharaoh would treat Moses. It was decided that Moses must be treated
with utmost respect.

Upon entering the land the first person that Moses went to see was the Pharaoh. As he
sat in the palace with the Pharaoh and did their greetings, most of the members of the
royal household left. A few key advisers stayed with the Pharaoh, Moses was there with
Aaron and a few of the members of the elders of the Hebrew Nation. As they began their
most frank discussion, Moses looked at the Pharaoh and asked him plainly why he did not
keep his promise? Why had he broken his covenant? Why he had killed his son? The
Pharaoh at first denied any implication in the murder of Moses’ son, pretended that he did
not break the covenant. He accused Moses of breaking his covenant by returning to the
land of Egypt from which he promised to stay away. Moses was normally quite shy and
quiet but he arose and stood in indignation before the Pharaoh. Pointing his finger at the
Pharaoh, he said, AThe angel told me you killed my son. This have you done. By doing so
you broke the covenant that you made with me. You have taken away from our people
their ability to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. You have closed their
temples, their synagogues, and their places of worship, raised their taxes, given them
corrupt seed to grow and sold them corrupted sheep and cattle. I come here this day as a
representative of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and at his command. His
command is this that you will let the Hebrew Nation go, to leave the land of Egypt with all of
their possessions and the wealth that they have acquired. You will no longer tax them nor
take from them that which is theirs. You will return unto them all that which you have taken
above the agreed-on tax of twenty percent. Not to do so will offend the one true God. He
has decreed that until you are willing to let the people go, he will bring plague after plague
upon your house. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will not be mocked before the
world and he will demonstrate that He rules over you. It is time that the world knows that
the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the creator of the earth; is the God of this earth; is
the God of the Hebrew people. Thus we command you to let the people go.@

The Pharaoh was not use to being talked to so and he rose in indignation before Moses.
Being of larger stature he towered over Moses threatening him and accusing him of not
nice things, saying there was no way that he would let the Hebrew Nation leave with the
excess taxes that he had collected. Nor would he let them leave with their possessions.
Nor would he even let the people go. The Pharaoh said, AWhere is your God that I should
worship him for look at all that I control. There is none that rules over me. I am the god of
the earth and I am the god of Egypt and I rule over the world. It is I who make the rules
and the laws. And it is I that would tell you what to do.@ Moses looked at the Pharaoh and
said, AThus we have the war of the Gods. You and your gods versus the God of Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob.@
       - 30 -

As the angel commanded him, he threw his staff down on the ground and it turned to a
snake. The Pharaoh looked at the priests who where with him and commanded them to
through down their priestly staffs, which also turned into snakes. Moses’ staff then went
and ate all the other snakes. The snake returned again to Moses. Moses bent down and
picked up the snake and it again became a staff. He looked at Pharaoh and said, AIf you
do not let the Hebrew Nation go, just as the snake has consumed the staffs of your priests,
so shall the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob consume your land.@ The Pharaoh was
angry and indignant. Moses looked at him and said, AI will go and reside in my tent in the
land of Goshen. If you repent and change your ways, all will be well. If not, in six months
the plagues shall begin. Thus, count for six months and then on the morrow shall the rivers
of Egypt run red for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have decreed it so.@ And
Moses left.

Moses went down to the river Nile which was beside the Palace. Lifting his hands up into
the air he called unto the Fathers. By the power of the priesthood after the order of the
Fathers, the holy priesthood of God, he commanded the rivers to have a red tide, and to
run red and be dead at the end of October. (He was standing where he had been taken
out of the River Nile when six months old. It was interesting how all had come full circle.)
Then he left and went into the land of the Hebrews in the northern part of Egypt.

Six months later when the red tide showed up at the capital on the river Nile, the priests of
the Pharaoh showed up in the land of Goshen to speak to the elders of the Hebrews. They
threatened the Hebrews; told them that they would not be able to have their property back,
that their temples, their churches, their places of worship would remain closed; that they
would not be able to leave Egypt with their wealth. They said, “See! Watch what will
happen to you if you fight us, the gods of Egypt declare it so.” They went down to the river
Nile in the land of Goshen. They lifted their hands and prayed to their gods and
commanded the rivers to turn to blood; and the rivers turned to blood.

The children of Israel were heavy of heart for they expected not to suffer for their freedom.
There was some murmurings among the people that they too had to suffer some of the
indignities of the Egyptians. They complained to the elders of the Hebrew Nation, who
went unto Aaron, and Aaron unto Moses. He said, AIt is not good that the people are so
upset with us.@ Moses looked at Aaron and said, AThis too will pass in three days.@ And
Moses went into his own tent for he had brought his tent with him, desiring not to live in the
homes of the Hebrews but to live in his tent; for he found much solace with the Fathers.

As Moses had spoken, three days later the river began to run a different colour and slowly
clear up. All was quiet for awhile, for the time was not yet.

Approximately twenty seven days later at the end of November, Moses sent runners to the
Pharaoh that he may have audience with him. Permission was granted to have an
audience before the Pharaoh. As he went in to the Pharaoh, the Pharaoh asked him,
       - 31 -

AWhy do you trouble me? You cursed my land and I, the God of Egypt, cursed yours, for
there is no difference between your nation and mine.@ Moses acknowledged the reality of
what had happened. He turned to the Pharaoh and said, ABut now is the plague of the
frogs. On the morrow when the frogs come, such has never been in the land of Egypt.
There will be frogs everywhere.@ The Pharaoh laughed. Moses bowed his head and left.
For Moses understood the cycle of life and knew that with the coming of the red tide many
of the fish had been killed. With the death of the fish came the blooming of the tadpole
population. Now was the season for the frogs to come. And they came! Moses returned
to his tent in the land of Goshen. A few days later the Egyptian priests came to the Hebrew
people. Again they were rough with the elders of the Hebrew people: told them that they
too would now suffer the plague of the frogs. It would begin in the morrow for their gods
had decreed it so. And the Egyptian priests left.

On the morrow came the bloom of the frogs in the land of Goshen. The people were
frustrated and angry. They went unto the elders, and the elders went unto Aaron, and
Aaron came unto Moses. Aaron said, AMoses, this is not a good thing. The people are up
in arms and are upset because they are made to suffer the pains of the Egyptian people. If
our God can not limit these pains, if he will not differentiate between the Egyptians and the
Hebrews, then why should the Hebrews listen to us? Surely in the war of the gods, to the
Hebrew people the Egyptian gods look as strong as our God.@ Moses listened. After
Aaron left Moses closed his tent and went into his quarters to pray to the Fathers. The
angel of the Lord appeared to him, looked at him and asked him again, AWhy are you
troubled?@ Moses looked at him and spoke most plainly, AAs you have commanded, I
cursed the Egyptians. The plague comes. The Egyptian priests then come to our land and
they curse us, and the plague comes. As far as the Hebrew people are concerned, it is I
that brings the plague upon them. They feel that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is
blind and can not see that they are suffering. They can not separate between the Hebrew
and the Egyptian.@

The angel of the Lord turned to Moses and said, AThe problem is that there are too many
Hebrews among the Egyptians. Speak with Aaron on the morrow. Put a call to all the
Hebrews who wish to become children of an upright God, Children of Israel. Have them
return to the land of Goshen, that all the Hebrew nation may be gathered in one place.
When the nation is gathered, the Fathers can draw a line and separate between their
people and the Egyptians. For until the people are separate, it is very difficult to treat the
two people differently.@ Moses understood the request and went to Aaron=s tent. He
made the request of Aaron that he speak to the elders of the Hebrew Nation; that the
elders of the Hebrew tribes call all the Hebrew people to the land of Goshen. The promise
was that all the Hebrew people who would come to the land of Goshen would no longer
feel the effects of the plagues of the Egyptian nation. The God of Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob would setup a barrier and only the Egyptians and those who dwelt with them would
suffer the plagues.

The elders of the Hebrew Nation turned to Aaron and said that this was a hard request.
       - 32 -

Aaron said, AYou have three to four weeks to make it so, for that is when the next plague
will come. It is important now to go and teach the people to check their genealogies and to
gather them together, to band them together by tribes; to group them in one place that the
Fathers may be able to separate the Hebrew Nation from the Egyptians.” The elders of the
Hebrew Nation went out and spoke to the people. Those whose hearts were soft
consented; some of them permanently. Some needed to stay with families. Some, not
most, of the Hebrew Nation returned to the land of Goshen to become a distinct people.

Three to four weeks later in mid December, Moses again sought an audience with the
Pharaoh. The audience was granted. Moses went in to speak with the Pharaoh. The
Pharaoh said, AI see you are moving your people. You think I will let them go. That is not
so! They can not avoid their taxes and they can not have that which I have taken from
them.@ Moses said, AIt is not wise to anger the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.@ The
Pharaoh was very indignant with him. The Pharaoh said, AYou have cursed me and my
people, the Egyptians, and then we went and cursed you and your people. You came and
plagued me again; and we went and plagued you again. Your God is no god that I should
worship, nor your laws commands that I should obey. Nor are you a man I should have to
listen to for you are no longer Pharaoh and I rule over all the earth. No one defies the god
of the earth.@ Moses bowed before him and said, AYou have spoken well. No one defies
the God of the earth. Tomorrow will the maggots come into your land. There will be no
place in which there are no maggots. So speaks the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Until you let the people go the plagues will continue to come. That you may understand
plainly, the Hebrew Nation, those whose hearts are soft, who wish to be counted among
the Hebrew nation, have returned to the land of Goshen. From this day forth the God of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will protect them, and there will be a barrier between them and
the Egyptians and those of the Hebrew nation who stay among you. Anyone of the
Hebrew nation or the Egyptian nation that stays among you will receive the curses of the
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.@ Moses turned and left.

He felt that at this point in time it was wise to approach his wife, the Ethiopian princess. He
went and sat with his wife, spoke unto her plainly that which was coming, spoke unto her
plainly of the death of her son, spoke unto her plainly about who he was. Her heart had
always been soft towards Moses and Moses had always dealt honestly with her. She
explained to Moses that she would approach his daughters and see if any would come to
the land of Goshen to stay. But she told Moses this night she would go with him, she
would dwell in his tent with him; she would leave her home and palace complex. She
would leave with her servants and if the Pharaoh would allow it, they would remove their
possessions. Moses thanked her, embraced her and left with her for his tent.

So began the reverse assimilation of the Hebrew nation from the Egyptian nation. The
Pharaoh at this time was still not willing to allow the Hebrews to worship their own true
God, insisting that all people worship the gods of the Egyptians and plant the Egyptian
seed and raise the Egyptian animals. If the Hebrew people insisted on using the inferior
seed and raising the inferior animals, their assessment rate would be changed so that no
       - 33 -

money was lost to the Egyptian treasury. Thus the maggots came in the land of Egypt, for
there was no place where the flies did not lay their eggs. Maggots were in their food,
where the food was made and where the food was grown. Everywhere the Egyptians
went, there were maggots. They were throughout the land of Egypt. It tormented the
people for there was no food that was safe. They did not understand that there was
something in the preparation of their foods that attracted the flies, that the flies laid their
eggs there for it was sweet to the flies. The Hebrew people did not eat those foods,
instead they ate the plain foods. The Hebrew people went to the land of Goshen. In
Goshen the foods of the Egyptians were not available. The winds came and blew the flies
from the land of Goshen onto the land of Egypt. The flies only flew a short distance and
never returned to the land of Goshen. So by the use of winds were the flies moved and the
maggots laid in the land of Egypt. The plague of the maggots lasted about ten to fourteen
days. At this time the second plague began and that was the flies. With the blowing of the
winds and the death of the frogs had come a super population of a biting fly.

For approximately two weeks from when the maggots were first found, all of a sudden in
the land of Egypt, there arose horrendous clouds of biting flies. They were everywhere.
Biting everyone. They bit both man and beast, child, old and young; tormenting the
Egyptians because the bites would leave welts and infection. The Egyptian physicians in
their wisdom were able to treat the human infections. They were kept busy treating the
humans. All the Egyptians were bitten severely. Many were sick, many were ill, and many
were scarred, because the wounds that the flies left behind would form welts and raise into
a scar. The flies were not found among the Hebrew people in the land of Goshen.

This information was not lost on those of the Hebrew nation who were still intertwined with
the Egyptians. Because of this plague, more of the Hebrew people left Egypt. Also some
of the Egyptians left also, moving to live in tents in Goshen. The time between the
maggots and flies was six weeks. In this six week period of time there was a decrease in
the value of the Egyptian land and the Hebrews’ ability to sell the land that they had left
behind. We will see as the Hebrew people moved out from among the Egyptians and
moved to the land of Goshen that they had to live in tents, for there was not enough
housing in Goshen. As the people moved to Goshen those who had stayed longer in the
land of Egypt, when they left the land and properties they left behind was worth less, for the
economy of the country was suffering, badly. Because much of the land was still owned by
the Pharaoh or the priests, there were mostly poor Egyptians who had little money to buy
the homes and the property left by the Hebrews and Egyptians who wanted to leave for the
land of Goshen. At the beginning of February, during the first few days of the flies and the
biting, no one paid any attention because there had been no wounds or infection. It was
only approaching the end of the second week of the infestation of the flies that the people
began to raise an uproar to the Pharaoh. The pain and the inconvenience was beyond
belief!

At this point in time the Pharaoh sent for Moses, knowing full well that he was in the land of
Goshen. Moses said he would come to see him. The Pharaoh demanded his attendance
at the palace. Moses was living at no fixed address, and by living in a tent the Pharaoh=s
       - 34 -

men were not able to find him, nor would the Hebrew people willingly give up his location.
Moses refused to be found for another week to ten days, that the full impact of the curse of
the flies could be felt. Moses knew that eventually the flies would die and the cycle would
continue. So in the tenth day he wandered in where the Pharaoh=s army men where.
Moses said, AYou were looking for me? And yet I am here. Let=s go see the Pharaoh
now.@

Those of the Pharaoh=s army were not happy with Moses for many of their families had
suffered. The animals had suffered; all had suffered! Briskly he was taken to the palace
complex where the Pharaoh was. The Pharaoh had suffered; his family had suffered. The
anger was great. Moses could see the wisdom of having removed his wife and some of his
daughters from the palace complex. They would no longer have been safe there for the
anger was great. The Pharaoh was angry with him for the plague that had come. Moses
looked at him and said, ARemember when thou spoke and said that no one defies the God
of the earth! You defied the God of the earth and so you have suffered this day. Will you
allow us to open our churches and our synagogues? Will you allow us to worship as we
choose? To be a separate and distinct nation? Giving us credence before you as equals
and peers?@ Now the Pharaoh was angry for he knew that to allow any people within the
land of Egypt to own so much of the land of Egypt would in the end divide his country. He
knew that if he allowed the Hebrews to worship their God versus the Egyptian gods that the
Egyptian priests would rise in rebellion against him. The people would be offended and
angry. Many angry words were spoken between the Pharaoh and Moses. Moses
promised him that the plague would soon quit, but told the Pharaoh that if he did not allow
the people to worship as they wished and leave the land of Egypt the plagues would
continue, for the God of the earth had spoken. In the end, the Hebrew Nation would be set
free, to take with them all their possessions, to go to a land of promise, to begin anew and
build a new civilization of great value and worth. They would at times come to rival the
Egyptian nation, if not overshadow it. The God of the Hebrews had foretold it and promise
that such would come upon the Hebrew Nation. Now the Pharaoh was extremely wrought
that the Hebrew nation would ever rule over the House of Egypt. The Pharaoh
commanded Moses to leave his presence. Moses did as requested and returned to the
land of Goshen.

Moses returned to the land of Goshen and resided with his wife, the Ethiopian princess.
About a month later the cattle of the Egyptians began to get sick and die. In the end most
of the cattle of the Egyptian people died. There was a great hue and cry among the
Egyptian people because of the death of all their cattle, the death of all their animals, the
death of their pets. Those who were in charge of the Pharaoh=s animals went to the
Pharaoh. The Pharaoh was angry with them, for he felt they had not cared properly for the
animals that were put into their care. Great was the anguish of the people. Great was the
loss of the wealth of the land. Most of the animals on the Egyptian side of the country
perished. Again the Pharaoh was angry and sent for Moses. Moses came in the third
week of the plague. As he spoke with the Pharaoh again, he tried to reason with the
Pharaoh. His reasoning was thus, Moses said, ACan you not plainly see that the God of
the Hebrews rules the earth? You have kept us from taking much of our wealth out of the
      - 35 -

land of Egypt and out of the land of Goshen. Now all your animals and your cattle are
gone. Great is the stink thereof. To replace those animals you must come to our land.
You must buy of our cattle and of our animals. The price will be much greater, for we have
much and you have none or very little. Why must the God of the Hebrews treat you so
before you will acknowledge that he is the God of the earth? In order to replenish your
herds and buy animals for your country, you will have to come to us or the Midians or the
Ethiopians for the land of Egypt is bare. The Pharaoh was angry with him and declared
that he would never worship the God of the Hebrews nor allow the Hebrews to worship
such in the country of Egypt. Nor would he allow them to leave with their wealth. The
Egyptians would refuse to buy the inferior Hebrew cattle. The Pharaoh commanded Moses
to leave his presence.

The Egyptian people were not as hard towards the Hebrew people as the Pharaoh was.
They knew the Hebrew cattle were expensive, that they were fed on the grain and the
grasses. Thus many of the Hebrew cattle were sold to the Egyptians then moved back into
the land of Egypt. These cattle were bought at greatly inflated prices, for they sold the
Egyptians all that they wanted to sell. Although the Hebrews were not allowed to move
much of their wealth into the land of Goshen, yet through the flow of gold and wealth, in
exchange for cattle, much of the wealth of the land of Egypt was flowing into the land of
Goshen. As per Moses’ promises at this time, the plague ceased in about another week.
Over the period of the next month some of the cattle were replaced: the other animals were
partly replaced, and seemingly life returned to normal.

With the death of so many animals over a short period of time there arose huge piles of
dead animals. There was no place to put all the carcasses. Throughout the land of Egypt,
but not in the land of Goshen, were huge piles of dead animals spoiling, from which rose a
stink in the air. The breezes were quiet and the winds were not heavy. Then came the
next plague; the plague of diseases, of sickness and of boils. The land was heavy. The
stench was great. Since the death of the frogs and the spoiling of the rivers, it has been
one plague after another. The fish were dead. The frogs were dead. The flies and the
maggots had come. Now the Egyptian=s animals were dead. There was nothing but
stench in the land of Egypt. The stench lasted for several weeks. The Pharaoh sent for
Moses and again Moses could not be found. The people suffered mightily for there were
illnesses. The people and children were passing away for want of food and medicines.
The old people died or wished they had died. All the people were covered in boils and
none were protected. The physicians of the Egyptians had seen something similar in the
past but they had no medicines to treat it. At times the best they could do was treat the
symptoms of the illness and the boils. Great was the suffering of the people! The Pharaoh
was angry with Moses. Frustrated, for he knew Moses was hiding in the land of Goshen
and his army could not find him. Mightily did the people suffer; great was the anger and
the frustrations of the Egyptians toward the priests, the physicians and the Pharaoh, for
nothing brought them relief.

In the third week of the plague, Moses again presented himself before the Pharaoh=s
army, who brought Moses unto the Pharaoh. The Pharaoh was very angry with Moses.
       - 36 -

He cursed him and his God and his plagues. Moses listened and waited until his anger
was vented. Moses asked plainly, AWill you now acknowledge that the Hebrew God is the
God of all the earth?@ The Pharaoh said, AYes.@ Moses said, AWill you let us worship
then as we wish?@ The Pharaoh said, AYes.@ Moses turned to the Pharaoh and said,
AYou have broken many covenants with me, will you make another?@ The Pharaoh said,
AYes.@ Moses said, AI will teach you how to treat the animals so that the boils will cease
among the land, but you must keep your covenant or promise to the God of the Hebrews
that you made.@ The Pharaoh covenant and promised that he would. Moses went on to
tell them how to treat the piles of the dead animals. “For”, he said, AThis is the cause of
your boils, if you do this then the plague will cease among the people.@

So with joy Moses returned to the land of Goshen. He talked to the elders of the Hebrew
Nation and told them that again the Pharaoh promised that they could worship their God
and prepare to leave. They would be allowed to leave the land of Egypt and be recognized
as a people. That they could go to the land that he had spoken so often of, and become
an independent nation worshiping the one true God. So the alarm went among the people
to ready themselves. Because of the number of people involved, it took many days of
preparation. At the end of the next week as they were preparing, a messenger came from
the Pharaoh. He said, AThe boils are gone. Why do you prepare to leave for you have no
permission to go? If there is any movement by the Hebrew Nation to leave the land of
Egypt the army will be dispatched, and many of the Hebrews will die.@ Moses spread the
word to Aaron first and from Aaron to the elders of the Hebrew Nation to stand down, for
the time was not yet. The Hebrew people were frustrated again with their elders. Several
times had they prepared to go and nothing had happened. The elders went to Aaron and
said, AHow can we lead a people so? They think we are children who play with them.
These many times have we asked them to prepare to leave and these many times we have
not lead them out.@

Moses gave them direction to plant their crops and shear their sheep for the next plague
would not come for some time. Everyone was unhappy with Moses. The Hebrew were
frustrated because they could not leave and he kept telling them to make ready; the
Egyptians did not like him because of the plagues. The Pharaoh had used the plagues to
anger the Egyptians towards the Hebrews. So anything the Hebrews wished to buy from
the Egyptians became more difficult to purchase; the price became higher. The Hebrews
were being punished by the Egyptians, for the Egyptians had had to buy cattle and animals
from the Hebrews at much higher prices, for very inferior animals.

So the spring and the early summer went. As the crop ripened in the fields and the fields
looked good, the Pharaoh sent a letter to Moses, taunting him. The Pharaoh asking
Moses, AHow long will you dwell among the Hebrew nations pretending to be a Pharaoh or
leader of their people? You can see that the Egyptian gods rule over all the earth and the
plagues have ceased. The cattle are replaced; the land is cleansed; the illnesses are
gone. Why do you torment your people so and pretend to be their leader? Do you not
know that the Pharaoh is the god of the Hebrews?@ Moses’ heart was heavy as he read
       - 37 -

the letter. He thanked the messenger and asked him to wait. On the morrow he would
reply. Moses went into his tent and he called unto the Fathers, that he may know that
which he should do. Once again the angel appeared to him. The angel spoke plainly with
Moses and said, AThe time is now for you to ask of the Fathers that the hail would come
upon the land of Egypt. It is necessary to man that he is given time to repent and to
change, be given choice. So have they chosen.@ Moses went out into the still of the night
and called unto the Fathers. By the power and the authority of the Fathers, he commanded
the storms and the hails to come upon the land of Egypt. He returned to his tent. Picked
up the letter from the Pharaoh and at the bottom of the letter, he made a note. AWhy taunt
you the God of the earth? On the morrow shall the God of the earth speak unto the
Egyptian nation again. As you have requested, the God of the Hebrews will again show
you who is God of the earth.@ He signed his name, Pharaoh of the Hebrew People, rolled
up the scroll and sent for the messenger. He gave the letter to the messenger and sent
him on his way.

Two days later as the Pharaoh was reading the letter, he looked out and he saw the
darkness of the clouds appearing. As far as he could see, the earth and the sky were dark
and black. It was as though the sun had quit shining. At first light rain came, then he
heard the wind. He saw the lightning and heard the thundering. Then the hail came. In all
the records that the Egyptians had kept, there was no record of such hail among the
people. It came all that day and into the night. Sometimes little hail, sometimes big hail,
sometimes just rain. The sky was ablaze with lightning. And so it continued for three days,
relentlessly pouring down on the Egyptian nation. The Pharaoh was angry and wrote a
letter to Moses, and gave it to the messenger but the messenger did not leave the palace
complex but hid by the outside wall. He had heard reports from various parts of the land of
Egypt that the hail had been so strong that only the strongest buildings still stood. All was
smashed. Animals were dead. People who ventured out into the weather were dying,
because it would seem like it was nice rain one time and several hours later the hail would
roll. As the hail rolled in, then whatever was out was destroyed. So the people were afraid
and stayed in their home or places of security. Even the messenger did not leave. So for
the better part of the week the hail rolled through the land of Egypt. Then as quickly as the
storm had come, the hail clouds departed and the sun came out. The destruction and the
terrible effects of the storm were seen. Mighty was the cry in the land of Egypt, the runners
came from all parts of the land of Egypt, to report unto the Pharaoh all that had been done
and all that was destroyed. Great was the anger! The Pharaoh blamed the Hebrew
people for this. Moses said, AIf you do not believe me, send your friends into the land of
Goshen, to the land of the Hebrews, to see. There is no destruction there, there were no
storms there; just the gentle rain. There is no destruction of the crops; their crops grow
stronger and better. Not even their tents are knocked down. Go and look.@ And they did
and all the land of Egypt became aware.

Now the Pharaoh blamed the Hebrews for the storm. The Egyptian priests blamed the
Hebrews for the storm. The Hebrew said the storm came because their God was angered
against the Egyptian gods because the Egyptians would not worship their God. The
Pharaoh again sent for Moses. When Moses reported to the Pharaoh, Moses spoke
       - 38 -

plainly about all that Egypt was doing. Moses took them back in time, when the crops that
they grew were plain and simple; when the wheat was wheat and cotton was cotton; where
the cattle were normal and the sheep were normal. Moses took them to the first dynasty,
to the beginning when they worshiped the one true God; where they revered the land and
they treated the land with respect, and they respected the animals that God had created.
They respected the plants that God had created. As Moses took them through time,
through the life of Shem, of the early Pharaohs, he told them how Egypt became a mighty
nation. In their desire for might and control, in them grew the desire to do less work and
not labour, they had lost respect for the land. In losing respect for the land they no longer
were happy with the crops that were being produced. They sought to make better crops,
more productive crops; to make the land produce more with less work. In doing so, rather
then treat the land with respect, they began what we call “mining the land”. Drawing out all
that they could with as little effort as possible.

In doing so, they found ways to change and alter seeds. They found ways to change and
alter the land, to put chemicals on the land that would change the land. They found ways
to change the animals so that the animals would grow larger, fatter, stronger, more
productive. Rather than raising the animals in an appropriate manner and treating the
animals with respect, the animals became something the Egyptians used, something more
like an object that they could change and alter at will. They lost respect for the one true
God. They lost respect for the God that had created these things in the very manner in
which they were created. They began to believe that they were smarter than God, and that
God, the Creator, was not always wise in the creations that he had made and given to
man. In doing so they had become lifted up in their pride. In the respect of men this day,
they would have been mighty in the laws of science and medicine. They started to return
back to the old ways of the people in the days of Noah, where they had corrupted the crops
and the animals. Moses had begun his cleansing with Zipporah=s prized sheep that she
had purchased from the Egyptians. For Moses found that those sheep were offensive
before God and their flesh was corrupt; so the sheep were slaughtered. Because their
flesh was corrupt, they were no longer fit for men; they were diseased and had to be
buried. He turned to the Pharaoh and he said, ADid I not warn you when I first came that
you were changing the crops and changing the animals? The Creator was angry with you
for doing this, and you laughed at me! These curses did not come upon the Hebrew
people for I went to my people and I told them plainly about how the Creator felt about the
crops and the animals. We have kept our animals separate. We have gone to the old
crops and we raised the old animals. Knowing that by raising animals as they are and
crops as they should be, the Creator will not destroy them; for the Creator has no desire to
destroy crops that are not corrupt before him. But the whole land of Egypt was full of
corrupt crops, corrupt animals and you have angered the Creator.@

The Pharaoh lost his temper with Moses. In great anger he chided him and berated him.
The Pharaoh said, AHow dare you speak to me that way? We are the mightiest nation on
the earth and we control all the earth. All the laws of science are subject to us because we
are the greatest nation on the earth. And we rule! Who are you to tell us what we can
grow? How we should treat the earth and the crops? Every time my heart softens that I
       - 39 -

may let your people go, you come in here and you anger me because you speak of your
Creator, as if I should be subject to him. Understand plainly Moses what I will do.
Because your crops produce less and you have less twins in your animals at their birth, we
will raise again the taxes on the people, and we will tax them as if they could produce the
good crops rather than the poor crops. It will be necessary for us to replenish our crops
that have been lost and feed our animals that we have obtained through you. Look what
you have done to us! You have sold us these poor mangy animals, requiring that we pay
high prices for these animals that are inferior. You show me a sheep that is weak, a cow
that is not strong and you say it is better. Are you blind Moses? Can you not see? We
have lost all our great sheep. We have lost all our great cattle. Some of our crops are now
lost and then you come in and offend me with the words of your Creator. Do you not know
that I rule the earth? Do you have no respect for the Pharaoh of Egypt?@ Moses turned to
the Pharaoh and said, AI represent the Creator of the earth. He has no respect for the
Pharaoh of Egypt. He expects all men, all Kings, all his creations to be subject unto him
and unto his laws, to be obedient, to have respect for each other and the earth. Your heart
is hard. You do not respect the earth. You are angry for what the Fathers have taken
back. So be it! For other plagues will come until all the flesh you have corrupted is gone.
Until all the crops that you have created that are corrupt are gone; that all the fruit trees
that you have created and are corrupt are gone. The Fathers will not be mocked! They
refuse to let man become like he was in the days of Noah. The Creator promised Noah
that he would never cleanse the whole earth again. Therefore a cleansing has begun and
will continue until Egypt is cleansed, and the whole world knows that they should not use
the Egyptian crops or raise the Egyptian cattle. For all are corrupt before the Fathers and
the Creator.@ Moses bowed respectfully and left.

Moses returned to the land of the Hebrews in Goshen. Moses explained to Aaron plainly
that the Creator had spared their animals and their crops. He encouraged all who would
leave the land of Egypt to come to the land of the Hebrews, to be inspected to make sure
that all the animals brought in were not corrupt and all the seed that were brought in were
not corrupt. The land of Goshen would have no corrupt crops and no corrupt animals in it.
 If there were any, they would be killed and burned. The Creator demanded that they be
burned and not just buried. All was done as Moses had commanded. Aaron went to the
elders of the Hebrew Nation and explained to them what they must do. And it was so! On
the morrow, Moses arose from his tent. Heavy had been the dream of the night before,
when the angel had appeared to him and told him now was the time to bring in the plague
of the locusts. All plants that had not been killed with the days of the storms would be
eaten by the locusts so that all the remaining trees and plants would die. Moses did as he
was commanded. He went outside his tent and lifted his arms to the Fathers, by the power
of the priesthood which he held, the Power and Authority of God, he called in the locusts to
the land of Egypt, so that the land may be cleansed of all the corrupt crops that were within
it. And it was so!

It was about a week later that the locusts appeared. They ate everything in sight. Every
green thing that could be found. All that was flesh, flesh of the earth, the green things. All
the crops were gone. Between what the people were eating and with the cattle that were
       - 40 -

gone and the new cattle they had purchased from the Hebrews, everything that they had
grown was gone. There was no corrupt seed or plant in the land of Egypt. The Hebrews
had cleansed their land, burned the diseased and corrupt animals and all was cleansed in
their land.

Great was the grieving of the Egyptians. Now all their crops were gone. All their animals
were gone and all they had were the mangy animals that they bought from the Sumarians,
Ethiopians and the Hebrews. Great was their anger and their frustrations. Great sorrow
was with the Pharaoh. There was no food. Great was the cry out of the land of Egypt, in
one summer all that was there was lost. After the locusts left, at the end of the winter,
Pharaoh and the people grieved for some time. They bought off the Hebrews, and sorely
taxed the Hebrews. Obtaining what they could. But the Hebrews hid much from them.
The Egyptians bought what they could from the lands around them. Slowly the heart of the
Pharaoh softened and he called upon Moses and asked if he would come. Moses went
into the Pharaoh and asked him, AWhat do you wish of me? You said that you would let
the people go. That you would cease your work with the strange plants and the strange
animals; that the earth could return to the way it was. Many of those who have done thus
are now gone. The land is broke, there is no money. Many of the people are returning to
their homes in distance lands. No longer are you able to do the mighty projects you once
did. Will you acknowledge that the Hebrew God is the Creator of the earth and will you
have respect for it from this day forth? For the Creator demands respect from all the Kings
of the earth.@

At first the Pharaoh was soft because the times had been hard. The people had suffered
much and great was their frustration and anger. He turned to Moses and he said, AWhat
more can you do than that which you have done? We have wintered over and spring is
coming and all will return to normal. Who are you to tell us what to do? For we will begin
anew and the land will become rich and we will grow.@ Moses could see the hardness of
his heart, that he had not changed. Moses turned to the Pharaoh and said, ABecause of
the hardness of your heart, mark on your calendar that three months from the day that the
plague of the locust ceased will come three days of darkness. With the coming of the
spring rains will come three days of darkness over the land of Egypt. Even over the land of
the Hebrews will it be dark. We will not plant our spring crops this year. We will gather all
into our tents and into our homes. For with the spring rains and those three days of
darkness, will come dust into the air. And with the dust comes the rain. It will bring a new
soil upon the land of Egypt. A land that was once rich will be barren. Land that once
produced great crops will no longer produce them. The land of Egypt will be sterile for
seven years. No crops will grow and no trees will grow. You will not see the effects right
away for your plants will start and then they will die. But the Hebrew people will no longer
stay here as a nation and you will no longer stop us. For after three days of darkness and
the new soil washing on the land there will be two weeks of peace and quiet. Then will be
the destruction of the first born of the House of Egypt. All the first born males of all the
Houses of Egypt will be struck. Many will be sick but only the first born will die and then we
will leave. If you are wise you will not follow us. For it is our time. The spring is here. We
will go to the temple at Mt. Sinai and then to our land. In time for the spring planting. The
       - 41 -

God of the Hebrews has spoken it and so will it be.@

Now the Pharaoh of very angry with Moses and Moses had been rude to him; spoken of
death throughout the land of Egypt; spoken of ruining his land that had been so bounteous
in crops. For it was a land of milk and honey. After all the plagues that Moses had brought
upon the land, he was saying he was going to destroy the land for seven years. And kill
the first born of all the Houses of the Egyptians and make everyone else sick. The
Pharaoh was angry and cast Moses out of his presence. Moses left and went back to the
land of the Hebrews. Moses spoke unto Aaron in the land of the Hebrews and Moses said,
ARemember, that which we asked that you make when I first returned from the temple Mt.
Sinai? That all women would make and all children would make this mask that they would
draw across their face?@ Aaron said, AYes, I do remember the mask that we asked the
Hebrew people to make.@ Moses said, AIn one week’s time they must begin to wear them,
and wear them for three days. Stay inside their tents and their homes. Close all their
windows and do not go outside. Do not stir the air. And in this period of a week, prepare
all things for leaving. For the time is at hand as was spoken of in the beginning.@

Now many times the Hebrew Nation had wanted to leave. But Moses had warned them
that the time was not yet but the people often would not listen. For they were anxious that
they could leave with all their property and their wealth. With each increasing storm and
each increasing destruction in the land of Egypt their wealth had grown. Now most of the
Hebrews in the land of Egypt resided in the land of Goshen and many of the Egyptian too.
The land of Goshen was now full of people. The Egyptians out numbered them two or
three to one. The Hebrews at first had been upset that so many would come and join
them. Moses said, ALet it be so. We will care for them as long as they will abide by our
covenants and keep our promises that we have made to our Creator. Then it will be so
and all will be good with us.@ So Aaron sent the word out to the elders of the Hebrew
Nation. The elders of the Hebrew Nation went out both to the Hebrews and the Egyptians
to put all things in readiness. In each of the Egyptian homes or tents that they went to, the
Hebrews’ teachers required that the Egyptians would read the Book of the Covenant,
understand the rules of the Book of the Covenant and would agree to abide by them. All
questions were answered plainly. If the Egyptians did not want to abide by the Book of the
Covenant, they were asked to leave the land of the Hebrews. It was because only those
who would be obedient to the laws, the laws of the Creator, should be allowed to stay
there, or to travel with them. For the time of the travel had come. The time of the
gathering in of their wealth had come. They had a week to gather all that they could for
there would only be a short time between the days of the darkness and the destroyer who
would come. During those two weeks they were commanded that they do not leave their
abodes; that they wear their masks and to put all things to readiness before the darkness,
and do it now!

Moses had been most plain with them that anyone who would take off their mask would get
sick. Anyone who would not be obedient would die. The laws went out. The covenants
were made in the land of the Hebrews, among the Egyptians and the Hebrew Nation. All
       - 42 -

waited for the three days of darkness. The three days of darkness came. As Moses
predicated, they could not light candles and fires would not work. Heavy was the dust. If
they looked out their windows or their tents and they wore not their masks, they could feel
the stinging in their throats and their noses. Everyone stayed where they should be.
Anyone who ventured out became sick. The rains came and the dust fell heavy upon the
land. Heavy was the dust upon the land of Egypt. Moses had commanded that the people
not let the children play in the dust. Everyone was to stay in their tents. All that were
obedient were fine. With his last law he asked them to wait two weeks from the beginning
of the days of darkness till eleven days after the darkness ceased before beginning the
celebration of the Passover.

With the taking of the covenant came also the calendar. Fourteen days after the beginning
of the days of darkness began the Hebrew calendar. The first day of the first month they
were commanded that they would celebrate their Passover. Moses had learned from prior
experiences that people must needs have feast. So this one they called the Feast of the
Passover. All of the Hebrews, and the Egyptians that dwelt with them in their land, who
had been obedient to the laws of the Creator and the laws of Moses, were preserved.
Those who were not obedient, even among the Hebrew Nation or the Egyptians that dwelt
with them, perished, for the law was very exacting and unforgiving. The celebration of the
Passover began. The Hebrew new year began. They set up the calendar for the Hebrew
people and began the celebration of the Passover.

It was with great joy that Moses had reached this step in time. For long had he dreamed,
as he stayed with Jethro in Median, of the opportunity he would have to form a righteous
group of people, who would be obedient to the God of the Hebrews, the God of Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob. He would help form them into a nation, start a new tradition, start a new
culture and form a great people and nation. Many years Moses had walked and trekked,
learning and studying and preparing, often looking for the day when he would be a modern
Enoch. For his desire, after reading the history of the people and writing a history of the
Hebrew nation, was to find a country like unto Enoch. A country where the people would
worship the one true God; where they would live the commands and keep the covenants.
Where they would become a righteous country, where they would be protected from all the
earth; to be the greatest nation of the earth; to be a people who loved the law; to be a man
of record for all time, as one who was as successful as Enoch was in forming a righteous
city. He read of Shem trying to set up this same system. He had studied the things that
Shem had done as he tried to form a righteous city. He watched the traditions they set up;
the laws set up. It was with great anticipation that he was working with the Hebrew Nation,
because he felt that with his people he would be able to be successful where Shem was
not. He felt that the people would follow him; that they would honour their God; that they
would keep true to the promise. Moses felt that the plagues had eliminated many of those
that were not willing to be obedient. For those who desired not to stay with the Hebrews in
their tents, stayed with the Egyptians and suffered from the plagues. Many had died.
Those who came to live with the Hebrews if they kept not the law, as the law of the
Passover, he knew that they too would die. Moses desire was, in the end, to have a
people whose hearts were true; who were obedient; who would keep the covenants that
       - 43 -

they would make.

It was with this anticipation that they began the celebration of the Passover. As part of the
ceremony of the Passover, the blood of a lamb was to be sprinkled by the entrance of the
tent since most of the members of the Hebrew people were now living in tents. The
instruction was to take the blood of the lamb and put it on a tree or a branch and to drip it
across the front of the tent. This was to signify that the home they were in was the home of
a Hebrew, who believed in the lamb that would come and who would shed his blood on the
ground, and by shedding his blood on the ground would take away the sin of the people.
He would deliver them from spiritual death, thus bringing about salvation. All this was done
in accordance with Moses= directions. For the Feast of the Passover which became the
Feast of Life was essentially a Feast of the Christ. It was done in the spring of the year. It
was in similitude of Jehovah, the one who would deliver Israel. It was served with bitter
herbs so that the House Israel would be reminded that if they did not repent and have a
soft heart when the Jehovah came among them, they would not remember him and they
would kill him. It was a spring lamb for it was young and fresh and not old, had no broken
bones in signification that the Jehovah who would die would not have his bones broken.
The blood of the lamb was sprinkled at everyone=s household; signifying that all who
believed in the Jehovah or the Christ would be saved. That he would shed his blood for
them and it would be shed on the ground as a witness before all men and all gods that he
was the Christ; the one who took upon himself the sins of the entire world. It was of
significance that he was the first born, dedicated to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The lamb was eaten with the unleavened bread, for it was to be remembered that he would
not be treated well by his people. Nor would he be looked upon favourably by them.
Although he was a lamb without blemish, the Hebrew people would treat him as one who
was scarred. And one for whom they felt disgust.

Because the people had stayed indoors during the feast of the Passover, stayed in their
tents on the Feast of the Passover and had worn the mask that Moses had commanded
them, those of the Hebrew nation and the land of Goshen and all their first born were
protected. Great was the death on this April night in the land of Egypt. For most of the first
born in all the land of Egypt died. Many children also died. In the land of Goshen there
were some deaths. There were those who heeded not the council of Moses, would not
listen to Aaron, and would not listen to the Hebrew teachers and the leaders of their tribes.
 Moses had given very plain instructions. Those of the Hebrew Nation who would not listen
and who died in the morrow when they broke camp were not to be looked upon, were not
to be buried, were not to be cared for. They were to be left where they were, for it was
more important that the march begin. At sunrise the next morning the call went out
throughout the land of Goshen and the people began to assemble, and great was the
assembly of the people. For the assembly of the people was over the number among the
House of the Hebrew nation, over six hundred thousand households. Each by their tribe.
The people of the House of Egypt who went with them at this time were not numbered, but
the estimate given by Moses was that there were two point nine million Egyptians that left
with the Hebrew nation as they moved out of the land of Goshen. Moses estimates that
the total number of people that he was shepherding at this time was somewhere between
       - 44 -

eight and nine million people. The Egyptians who came with the Hebrew people were not
always a tidy lot because they did not always pay attention to their genealogy and they did
not break down themselves by tribes. It was always a challenge for Moses and the Hebrew
elders to find a way to organize them and to work with them and bring them along. Most of
the Egyptian nation did travel as far as Sinai in the wilderness. Many continued on their
treks; most stayed with the Hebrew Nation.

At this time Moses had a particular problem and that was the large number of people that
he was moving in mass. For them to break camp and prepare for their trip it usually took
the people a day. By the time everyone was packed and the people were starting to move
it was near evening. Moses felt that there was no way that he could travel this way with
such a group of people. He remembered the promise that the angel had made unto him.
That depending on the number of people that went with him if the want was necessary and
the need was there, that angels of the Fathers would be sent. Each one would be
assigned a post down the side of the people as they walked along. Each of them would
come in their glory and in their power and in their strength, and as such, then the road
would be lighted ahead and that people could continue on their journey. For the journey
was slow. Many had animals, the animals were slow. Many had carts and the carts were
slow. Many of the people were walking. It was a mighty task to move this great number of
people. So Moses set it up. They would start breaking camp for a day. They would travel
over the night and into noon the next day. The first people of the group would then settle
down and settle in for the night. They would sleep until the next morning. They would
arise and break camp. Somewhere between noon and four o=clock that afternoon they
would begin their march. They would march throughout the night and into the next day
noon. Then they would set down their camp again. In this way they traveled.

They were heading to cross the Red Sea or the Sea of Reeds, just south of the Bittern
Lakes there. There was a narrow where you could go across. The angel had commanded
and advised Moses that this was the route that they should take. For it would take them
through and south into Sinai. They would avoid the large lakes and streams, because it
was the spring of the year and the water was rushing. They would cross by the town that
was there at the north end of the Red Sea. This way they traveled for several days. By the
end of the sixth day they were settling in by the Red Sea with the mountains behind them.
Moses had assigned men from the tribes to keep watch both on the sides, in the front and
in the back. The men came in alarm and reported to Moses, for the Egyptian army was
coming fast upon them. The men wanted to know what they should do. The Egyptian
army had circled around them from the north and they were coming to press them between
the mountains and the Sea of Reeds. The angel had warned Moses long ago in Sinai that
the Pharaoh could easily do this. Moses was very aware that the army had been coming,
that they had been gathering the army of the Egyptians, gathering all the chariots that they
could find, and even bringing six hundred of the special steel war chariots, used only in war
for mowing down the foot soldiers. When Moses heard that they had brought even these
chariots, he knew that they had come not to drive the Hebrew nation and the Egyptians
back; they had come to rob and plunder and kill. At this point in time the Hebrew nation
had only small arms, for the arms they carried were to protect the sheep, their homes and
       - 45 -

their land. They were not a heavily armed people nor where they skilled in war, nor did
they have the instruments of war.

The Pharaoh knew that this would be a slaughter and promised great plunder to the men of
the army that came with him. He felt that he could give them great plunder and he would
still have so much plunder left. There would be no need to worry because all the wealth of
Egypt, except for what adorned the palaces and except for what adorned the temples, was
carried by the Hebrews and the Egyptians who had left. If the Hebrews and Egyptians
were allowed to leave with that wealth then the devastating economy of no crops for seven
years, of no cattle, of no means of livelihood and no green plants left, would totally
devastate the country. To leave with the wealth that was remaining would turn the greatest
nation on earth, the Pharaoh who all the world feared now would be broke, penniless, and
unable to pay even his army. This was a condition that not even the Pharaoh could stand
to live under. So he had brought his army that they could plunder, for such was their intent!

Moses turned to the angels that were accompanying the Hebrew Nation as they came into
the valley there. As the people set up for the night, he told them to camp. He commanded
the angels who had come with them to form a wall at the end of the camp, between them
and the Pharaoh and in so doing he commanded the angels to throw dust in the air
towards the Pharaoh and his army so those with the Pharaoh could not see. So they could
not attack even though it was light on the camp of the Hebrew Nation. Moses then turned
his attention to the Red Sea or the Sea of Reeds. Moses called unto the Fathers. He
called for a great wind and a huge tide and great was the pull of the tide that night. For the
pull of the moon was so strong that it drew back all the water off the land. Great was the
wind that night. For it blew all the dirt and mud hard. All that night the wind blew. On the
morrow of the beginning of the seventh day, which would have been their Sabbath, Moses
called for the men to blow the horns that the people could march forward for the marsh bed
was dry and it was time to go. By noon the people were moving into the bed of the Red
Sea. All day did the people move. As it drew nigh to night and the people drew up closer
behind them at the Red Sea, the angels too drew closer so that they could continue to
travel. As it got darker, the angels spread themselves out over the rocks of the river there
in the Sea of Reeds. Several angels stayed behind to keep the Egyptians back and on the
people traveled through the night. All night did the people travel across the Sea of Reeds.
In the morning of the eighth day, as the sun was coming up, the last of the Hebrew nation
and Egyptian nation crossed the Sea of Reeds and arrived safely on the Sinai Peninsula.
As this occurred, the Egyptian army began their race across the Sea of Reeds, led by the
special six hundred steel war chariots. But the steel chariots were made for good roads
and this was a river bed, and their weight was heavy. As the Egyptian army passed the
two thirds mark, all of a sudden the sky drew dark and cloudy; the Red Sea began to flow
back into its place. The winds came up from the south and as the winds came up through
the south, the waters blew in with a tremendous force. The Sea of Reeds bed that would
have taken the special chariots and all the chariots of Egypt began to soften. The men
panicked and tried to turn around their chariots; the mud was softening and grabbed their
wheels. Between the mud grabbing the wheels and the pull of the horses, the wheels
broke off. The horses could not pull the chariots in the mud. The army was close behind
       - 46 -

and as they started to turn around, the sea came upon them. Their armor was heavy; their
swords and shields were heavy. Although the water was maybe ten feet deep, the waves
were another 30 feet high. It over came the Egyptian army and it over came the chariots.
All perished that day as the tide came in, and the sea stormed and the winds blew in from
the south.

The Hebrew Nation stood on the Sinai Peninsula and watched the destruction of the
Pharaoh=s army. As the waves came in and washed the soldiers’ bodies up on shore,
they knew on the morrow they could go and collect all the weapons they would need. They
now would have the weapons they needed to form their own army. So it was! On the
morrow, Moses called together the elders of the Hebrew people, assigned men from each
tribe to go and gather the weapons. There was also a call for any who wanted to go, to go
and collect on their own, as long as there was enough for each of the tribes. And it was so.
  There were many horses that survived. But Moses forbid the children of the Hebrews
from taking any of the horses with them. He said they must turn them loose and let them
return to their homes. And it was so! So on the morrow began the gathering of the
weapons. All that day did they gather and great was the gathering thereof.

Now the people had been marching hard for seven days. They had gathered weapons on
the eighth day. They were hungry and they were tired. They had only eaten leavened
bread and what they could pack. There was a well nearby. But there was so many people
and the well water was bitter. So the people called unto their elders, the elders call unto
Aaron and Aaron unto Moses. Moses went to the well and by the power and authority of
the Fathers and with some herbs that he had brought with him, he threw the herbs into the
water, making the water sweet that the people could drink. And so they did.

At the beginning of the third day, for it had been a long time, Miriam rose early in the
morning and said, ANow it is time to celebrate, for great is our deliverance and great is our
joy.@ And a cry went out throughout all the camp of the Hebrews that they all be gathered
and that they dance and celebrate their deliverance, their wealth and their future prospects,
being able to go to the land of Canaan to receive their birthright and to inherit the land. Of
going to the temple to become a covenant people then they must celebrate and feast. It is
time for a good feast. The Hebrews had brought much barley beer with them. So on the
third day they did celebrate.

In the celebration Miriam and Aaron were quite prominent because they loved to celebrate
with the people. So they danced and sang till the wee hours of the morning; beginning
early in the day, and celebrating late into the night. When Miriam and Aaron and many of
the young and strong of the Hebrew Nation were celebrating, Moses took to heart the
experiences of so long ago. The fact that he had his Ethiopian wife with him, brought back
many of these feelings and remembrances. It might be wondered why Moses has never
given us her name. It is because the Hebrew people knew her name and because of it=s
reference in the Hebrew language they did laugh at her and mocked her and made fun of
her name. For that cause Moses has asked that the prophets down through the ages, who
       - 47 -

were told her name, to agreed not to write her name so that she would not be mocked. For
it was an offence unto Moses that the Hebrew Nation made fun of his wife=s name. For
Moses she was a soft woman. She was kind and did good. She had many characteristics
that Moses enjoyed. For the Hebrew nation found her very strong willed and very
protective of Moses. The Hebrews did not like those characteristics in the Ethiopian
princess. It was their desire and nature to treat and do unto Moses anything and
everything they wished. On a personal level the Ethiopian princess, Moses= wife, was
always there as a barrier and shield and protector for Moses. The Hebrew people did not
appreciate that.



As Miriam and Aaron celebrated with the Hebrew Nation, Moses walked by himself among
the camp. As he walked among the camp and he watched the events that were going on,
he noticed the changes in the people. He noticed the young and strong were camped by
the well. He noticed the tired and weak were at the far corners, the trailing edge of the
camp. He noticed that the people were no longer broken down by tribes, for the strong had
marched forth and taken their position by the food and water and by Moses. As he noticed
among the edges of the tribes of both the Hebrews and Egyptians, he listened in particular
to two ladies who were fighting. It seems that one of the young mothers had gone to the
well and as most of the camp had gone to the well and drawn most of the water, the water
that was left in the well was very silty. She had up drawn what water she could and put it in
a large vase and carried it back to her position in camp which she felt was very laborious
work. The lady in the adjoining tent was tired and old but from another tribe. As she
watched this she desired some of that water for herself. After the first woman had gone to
sleep for the night in her tent, the second woman snuck over and had taken some of the
water and took it back to her family so that they may have water to drink. In the morning
the young mother had awoken up and noticed the missing water. She immediately went to
the older lady who was in the adjoining tent and correctly accused her of taking her water.
As Moses was watching this confrontation, it broke his heart. For the one lady was
accusing the other lady of being a thief and stealing her good water. The second lady was
saying, ABut I did not steal the water because it was here and I was thirsty and we needed
drink so we perish not.” Moses could see that in outlining the camp for the Hebrew Nation
he had not been specific enough in how to establish the camp. He had not set up a basis
for dealing with the old and the sick and unhealthy. He pondered too the mothers in
childbirth and the mothers heavy-with-child. As he continued his wanderings on the edges
of the camp, he noticed that the guards were gone. This troubled him and inquiring as to
where the guards were, he found they were celebrating with Aaron and Miriam; this made
his heart heavy. As he spoke with the people at the edges of the camp, they told him of
the invasions of the Amalekites; how they would come in the middle of the night and would
rob them and leave. How, if they straggled very far behind the camp, the Amalekites were
upon them, stealing all that they had left. Moses found this very troubling. He was aware
of the Amalekites were in the desert and that they were robbers and thieves. But it grieved
him that he had allowed such to occur among his people; that although he had set up
means of protection, it obviously was not adequate. Although all the people were suppose
to travel by tribes, they had actually in their movements moved more like a mob than as
       - 48 -

tribes. He saw that as the women stayed back to bear their children and to care for the
little babies that were born, this put them at risk from the Amalekites. He could see that the
Amalekites would come in and take advantage of the situation. He saw much sadness.
For he remembered the Egyptian army and their plundering. Greatly did this grieve Moses.
So on he wandered throughout the day and into the evening, until he had wandered
around the camp and wandered back to where his own tent was. He went in and sat down
and talked to his wife and spoke plainly of what he had seen, spoke plainly of what he had
observed, spoke plainly of what changes he felt must be made. He enjoyed the support
and the strength that his Ethiopian wife offered him. For as he pondered these things he
was very aware that all the Elders of the Hebrew people were also celebrating and this
made his heart heavy. One of the other problems he noticed was the grazing of the
animals, for there had been many cattle and animals brought with them out of the land of
Egypt. He noticed that as they came with them that they fouled the ground and took up a
tremendous amount of water, actually more water than the people did. As he spoke of
these things and pondered what to do, he went to sleep.

He rose in the morning and called on the Elders of the Hebrew people that he might speak
with them. But as he went from tent to tent he found that they were still in the recovery
mode from their celebrating of the day before. So Moses had to wait till that afternoon
when they were feeling somewhat better and they could meet with him. So he set up a
meeting for that afternoon to meet with the Elders of the Hebrew Nation. As he set up the
meeting with them and spoke to them after they arrived, he explained to them what he
would like to do now is to take a forced march half way across the desert towards Sinai, to
set up a temporary camp there for several weeks to allow the people to recover and again
re-evaluate how the camp was traveling. It was his suggestion and the Elders agreed that
everyone from this point on was to travel exclusively by tribe. Each of the Elders for each
of the tribes was to make sure that everyone within their tribe was adequately taken care
of; that there were no stragglers; that there were no women in childbirth being left behind.
It was the request of Moses that the tribes travel as a tribe; that they look out for each other
since they know each other. It was important that they learn to become a cohesive unit;
that they have the feelings of love and care and concern for each other. So from this point
forth, they were to travel exclusively by tribe. As they traveled exclusively by tribe, each
tribe was to assign members to guard their tribe; not the Hebrew Nation in general but their
tribe! Because Moses felt that if by protecting that which belonged to them, they would find
the loyalty in the guards that they needed to protect their own people. At this point in time
the people did not have strong feelings for the other tribes, but if they were protecting their
own family and children then they would not leave their posts. His concern was over the
Amalekites that they would continually harass them, rob, plunder, maim and kill them.

The next thing he talked about was setting up a court. While he had walked among the
people, he related the story of the two ladies who had fought over the water. He said, AIt
was not so that the people should not have justice, nor was it so that there should not be a
law, there should be rules and regulations.@ Moses concern was strong because the
people had come from a nation where if they were Hebrew, they automatically were guilty
in court; where the police and those they guarded were always the Egyptians. Often the
       - 49 -

only accusers were the Egyptians. Often those who would handled the cases were the
Egyptians! They were always seeking the fine points of law so they could break the law.
Moses did not want the people to be treated so; nor did he wish that they would treat the
law so. For this cause, as he sat with the Elders he said, AOnce we reach the temporary
camp then I will sit as judge. I would want that all the Elders of the Hebrew Nation would
come and sit with me to listen to the judgements rendered; to think in their hearts with me
as we go over the case before us; to ponder with me what they feel and what they feel of
the Fathers; to ask pertinent questions to seek the truth and, in the end, make righteous
judgements. We must learn to make righteous judgements both in our families, in our
tribes and as a people. Therefore we must begin here. Come with me and we will learn.
Once you have learned and once the Elders are set up, then we will extend the courts of
justice down to all the people. For it is important that everyone learn that there is no one
person more important than another, nor one tribe more important than another.” Moses
explained that those who were Elders over the tribes, those that came to watch in
judgement, when their training session was done at the end of the next camp, then he
would ordain them to be judges among the people. He would give them the keys
necessary to be righteous judges among the people.

The third issue was that of the flocks. The bulk of the flocks were to be sent north and
travel in the lush land, towards the land of Canaan where there was fresh grass and water.
The Fathers had prepared the land and the winter rains had been heavy. The grass was
very heavy and sufficient to feed the large flocks of the Hebrews.

Now that the Hebrew people were well armed, three hundred men from each tribe were
sent to shepherd and guard the animals. These men would be rotated every month, so
that none would be away from their families very long. The other families would care for
their families while they were gone. They spoke to see if there were any other issues of
import, which there were none. They then began the forced march.

During the forced march, which took a period of about two weeks, there were several
events that occurred, but which were not actually resolved until they reached the temporary
camp. Perhaps the most important of these was people running out of food. Upon arrival
at the temporary camp there were many people who had run out of food. Many had
bought food, from the camp followers, to sustain them on their march to the temporary
camp. As the Elders brought forth the concern to Moses, Moses said, ANow it is time for a
rest and during this period it is time that we begin our cleansing. One of the first and most
important laws of our cleansing is to cleanse our body from within. We have eaten of the
sweet foods of the Egyptians which has not done our bodies well. The Fathers have asked
that we go through a period of cleansing before we approach the temple at Mt. Sinai.
During this period of cleansing we are only to eat Manna.

Now it is known and we are aware of the fact that there are camp followers who will bring
you food from other lands. It is a request of Hashem, the God of Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob that we do not partake of those foods but that we partake of the Manna and we
       - 50 -

begin to cleanse our bodies that we may be clean within. For if God is to make us a mighty
and distinct people and children of an upright God, then we must be cleansed.@ Moses
went on to explain that how, from this point on, they would observe the law of the Sabbath.
For the law of the Sabbath had not been observed up to this point in time. It was important
to Moses to move the people away both from the Amalekites and from the other people
who might attack or harass them. It was also important for Moses to separate the huge
flocks of sheep and cattle from the people, that the people would not get sick from the
diseases of the animals; that the animals too would have time to cleanse and prepare. As
he spoke with Elders of the Hebrew Nation he said, AFrom this day forward we shall
institute the law of the Sabbath. So that on every seventh day should we rest! And with
the coming of the Manna, then those who partake of the Manna, should gather enough on
the sixth day to have some for the seventh. This is a witness unto all people, unto all times
that the Fathers are the laws of the Sabbath; that the Sabbath was created for man and for
his benefit. It is a law to be honoured and to be obeyed, to be a day of rest!@

There was certain peculiarities in gathering the Manna. Moses noted as he watched that
the children=s fingers were so small that they were very adept at picking up the Manna;
thus those with young children had voluminous amounts of Manna. Moses cautioned the
people that it was only good for a day: that they should take what they had in abundance
and share with each other. It was important that they learn to share and care for each
other. For there was enough! If they tried to hold it over for the next day, then the Creator
had ruled that the Manna would spoil and become uneatable, and it was so!

So with the introduction of the Sabbath and the introduction of the law of sharing came a
new softness among the people. All those who participated in the law of the Manna, the
law of gathering, and the law of sharing grew as one people. Moses noted that many
people did not participate. There were those who would sneak out and buy from the camp
followers those foods that they still wanted. That was their choice and their right. But it
grieved his soul that some would do this!

At the temporary camp one of the things Moses noted when they came to set up the camp
was the positioning of the tribes and how the tribes were arguing with each other over
which tribe should be where. Those who were deemed important fought to be closest to
the water. The fighting and the arguing that went on greatly grieved Moses. It grieved him
so much that he took his own tent and moved it to the outside of the camp, for he did not
wish to be the centre of controversy. He sat down with the Elders of the Hebrews and they
designed a map of the camps that would be set up from this time forth, so that each tribe
would have a place. Where the wells were, then determined who had the more favourable
position, but each time the layout of the camp would be the same. So over time, everyone
would have a turn to be closest and furthest away. Trying anyway he could to organize the
tribes so that there would be as few conflicts as possible between the tribes.

Moses set his tent up on the outside of the camp because he wished to know what was
going on at the edges of the camp. He found that his underestimating of the Amalekites
       - 51 -

and the camp followers had created some problems up to this point in time. It seemed
that=s where the activities that would get the people in trouble were always going on.

After they had been several days in their new temporary camp, Jethro arrived with his
family and Moses= second wife. There was great joy in Moses= heart as he went up to
greet her: his sons had also come with her. Great was his joy that they had come and had
decided that they would join with the Hebrew people and become one with the Hebrew
Nation, to prepare to become children of an upright God, to become the Children of Israel.
So great was his joy that it was only in hindsight, later on looking back, that his heart was
saddened. For he realized in the end that she had come back because he was now Athe
leader@, he was in charge. By being his wife, she was the next in command to the
wealthiest people of the earth and this position was very important to her. For that cause
had she agreed to come with Jethro, that she may participate in the wealth of the Hebrew
nation. All the countries roundabout had heard of the Hebrew nation, heard of its wealth,
its power and its strength. All the nations were aware of the huge flocks of cattle and
sheep that they were moving on the north side of the Sinai desert peninsula. They were
very aware of the well-armed army that was with them, they were very aware that they had
the weapons of the Egyptians. Those who guarded and those who shepherded the
animals spoke with the local people. As is the nature of man, the stories grew more
wonderful and grander and more wondrous as the days went on. Jethro knew that Moses=
time was now. Jethro was aware of where the people were moving and knew it was time
he should come and visit with the Elders and Moses, and so therefore he did.

One of the first actions he did when he met with Moses and the Hebrew nation was to build
an altar and to offer sacrifice, although the people and Moses at this time were eating
Manna. Jethro had brought with him the sacramental bread and the barley beer to partake
of the ordinance of the sacrament and to introduce the ordinance of the sacrament to the
Elders of the Hebrew Nation. This Jethro did.

Once these formalities were over, Jethro spent much time in Moses= tent, for they were
fast friends. Moses was glad of his association, to be able to speak of the things of the
Fathers, to speak of the worries and the concerns he had. Great was Moses= joy on being
able to hug Jethro, and to receive of this strength, to know of his surety in the belief of the
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This was a great strength unto Moses. Jethro had
promised that he would be with him both in the first temporary camp that they had set up
here and in the temporary camp that they would set up on Mt. Sinai, Jethro promised that
he would also travel with him in between. They spoke also of the guards at the temple for
it was Jethro=s men who were the guards at the temple site. For the Elders of the Hebrew
Nation, although fresh at obtaining weapons, they were not a covenant people. It was
because they were not a covenant people that they were not deemed worthy to be guards
at the temple. Jethro said it would be all right for his men to stay there until such men
could be found among the Hebrew Nation.

During the time that Jethro was there with Moses he would, on a daily basis, come and sit
       - 52 -

and chat with Moses over what he had observed as he walked among the camp. Moses
had greatly missed his association. Because of his forthrightness and his wisdom,
because of his desire to do good and be a good man, Moses had missed walking with such
a man and greatly enjoyed Jethro=s association. The next thing Moses worked on was the
system of judges. He had set this up originally at the end of the third day by the Red Sea.
He now began to judge the people and encouraged all the people to bring cases before
him; he would sit in judgement on those cases. He talked plainly with the Elders of the
Hebrew people as they went through the sessions. What he saw, what he observed, what
he felt burn within him when he felt the person was lying. Encouraging them to understand
the feelings they themselves would have within their souls. It was important that all men
learn to be Judges. It was important that they learn to look for truth, that truth be what was
sought for the most; as Judges they not look to see if men will agree with them, because
often the correct judgment makes everyone angry with you, for no one side has all truth!
Each person feels you have not absolutely taken their complete perspective. He spoke to
the Elders plainly about what kind of men they should choose to be the Judges. Men who
would be willing to stand up and say what they honestly know; Men who would make
judgements in the face of all the information that was opposing them. That if it was said by
all parties involved that their judgement was not the correct judgement, that they would still
do that which they knew was true. Men of Honour! Men of Valour! Men who loved Truth!
Men of Integrity! Men who would judge equally between all people!

Moses spoke plainly with the Elders of the Hebrew Nation, telling them most plainly that if
the people did not feel there was righteous judgement, that if the people felt that certain
people because of their positions, especially as Elders in the Hebrew Nation, could break
the laws then as Elders of the Hebrew Nation, the Creator would hold them responsible for
leading the people astray by their judgement. Because not only are we responsible for
what we teach the people, we are also responsible for how we behave; how we apply the
laws to each other. Making sure that in all things we are exacting in obedience to the law,
the way the law was written, to keep the spirit of the law! That in our stewardship over our
fellow man, over whom we have charge, we do not lead them to do that which is improper.

By leading people astray, we take upon ourselves their sins and their sins will be upon us
and our children for four generations! Moses spoke these laws plainly unto the Elders for
Moses did not want there to be any misunderstandings regarding the law and making sure
that they understood the eternal effects of the judgements that they would make and the
affect it would have upon the Hebrew Nation for several hundred years. In all ways they
would seek to obey the laws of the Fathers and to obey them justly!

The next issue that Moses dealt with, with the Elders of the Hebrew Nation, was the issue
of midwifery. As Moses had wandered about the camp, he found that there was an
unequal number of midwives among the tribes of the Hebrew Nation. Because of this,
often they who needed help were in a position where they had to offer bribes or pay a high
price in order to get someone to help them because in some tribes there was a surplus and
in some tribes there was a shortage and the people would sometimes take advantage of
each other. Moses was very plain in speaking with the Elders that this was not proper. All
       - 53 -

women should have access to a midwife to help them. Therefore it was the command of
the Fathers, received by the Elders of the Hebrew people, that from this time forth the
midwives would be numbered among the tribes. There would be a proper relationship of
numbers in each of the tribes. There would not be a woman who would not have care at
the time that she came to delivery her child; nor that there would be pressure or arguments
over whether or not there was enough money being paid for the service to be preformed.
Thus was this set to order.

Now these things sound simple as we speak of them, but Moses spent in excess of two
months setting these procedures up. Because of the large number of people involved and
the large numbers of people being taught, it was a very long, slow process. Moses found
that the hardest thing to set up was the tribes of the Egyptians; because the Egyptians did
not have the same tribal alliances. Some of them would travel with the Elders of the
various tribes depending on which one they had intermarried with; some would travel
alone; some would travel in groups. In the end, all these tribes also were set to order and
all of them were organized, either incorporating them with the tribe of Israel and with their
numbers, or individually appointing men as heads of the Egyptian tribes. Those who
wished to stay with the Hebrew Nation, Moses required that they come to the meetings with
the Elders of the Hebrew Nation, Moses also required that they keep the laws. Moses was
very plain that if they did not want to keep the laws that they should not travel with the
Hebrew Nation but with the Egyptian Nation. For it was Moses= wish that the Hebrew
Nation become as one. Moses knew that they would not quickly become a covenant
people for they had come from a nation where often what people said was different from
what they did. So Moses preferred to keep some distance between the Egyptian Nation
and the Hebrew Nation. He did make sure that the Egyptian Nation had the arms to
protect themselves. As much as possible, he required that they keep the Sabbath. They
were allowed to gather the Manna. They could partake of the Manna with them and as
much as they wanted, they lived the laws of the one true God.

Another issue that Moses brought before the Elders of the Hebrew Nation was the subject
of the marriages of the young people. For it had come to his attention, that since their
leaving the land of Egypt, even though there had been forewarning among the Hebrew
nation of what was to occur, because of the length of time, (approximately two years), most
of the Hebrew nation questioned if their leaving Egypt would actually occur. So wedding
promises were made. Couples were being prepared to be married when the exodus
began. Moses asked that these marriages were put on hold until such time as they could
come to the temple at Mt. Sinai. If they would do this, then he would be able to introduce
them as a covenant people into the eternal order of marriage; this was the more
appropriate order of marriage. Although Jethro had preformed such marriages at times at
the temple of Sinai, not many had been preformed since the days of Shem. It was a good
thing to have a temple again where these marriages could be preformed.

The last issue they dealt with was the Amalekites. Moses spoke plainly of the battle they
had had with the Amalekites; how they had come upon the rear of the Egyptian people and
began a slaughter of the people. There had been a huge cry and the men had come to the
       - 54 -

rear to fight against the Amalekites. He spoke how the Fathers had preserved them in their
battle. As long as he held his rod up, they were successful in their battle. Many men were
lost; this was grievous to Moses. Because of their continual harassment of the Hebrew
Nation, Moses had spoken plainly to Jethro about this. Moses and Jethro had gone before
the Fathers seeking their counsel and advice. Moses and Jethro were told by the angel
that they were to warn the Amalekites that they were not to trouble this people any longer;
that if they would not cease and desist, because of the numerous incursions they had
made upon the Hebrew people the time would come that the Fathers would allow the
Hebrew Nation to destroy them; for the Amalekites were coming for plunder and they were
slaughtering the weak and the women and children. This was offensive unto the God of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Moses thus sent a delegation to the Amalekites warning them
of what the Fathers have said, promising in the end that they would have the same fate of
the Egyptian army, for the angels of the Fathers have spoken it and thus would it be. If
they would repent and come against them no more and restore unto the Hebrew people all
that they had taken, then all would be well with them. If not, then the God of Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob would bring retribution and justice upon their heads. As with the Pharaoh,
the Amalekites commanded the messengers to leave their presence for they did not
believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

After about two months, at their first temporary camp, as best Moses could assess, most of
the correction of the problems had been implemented and the people were better situated
for the second half of the march. The second half of the march began on the day after the
Sabbath. Moses told the people that the next part of the march would be to the temple at
Mt. Sinai. He told them plainly that men were being sent ahead to stake out the ground, to
set the areas for each of the camps. That is where each of the tribes would settle, each by
their tribe, each by their position, both in their traveling and in their residing there at Mt.
Sinai. Moses advised them that the Manna would continue even though they were moving.
He cautioned them to make sure that they obtained enough water when they began their
march to Mt. Sinai. He explained that the camp at Mt. Sinai was particularly important
because it was there they were reaching the half way mark on their march to the Canaanite
land, the land of their inheritance. He also told them that they would be there for an
extended period of time. Because of this, the tents were organized so they could set up a
system of water distribution that was more appropriate for the people; for they could bring
the water to several locations throughout the camp. The boundaries were set up for the
Hebrew Nation; boundaries were set up for the Egyptian people.

During their time there at the first camp Moses had set up the most interesting government.
We will take a moment to discuss that government. There was three parts to the
government. There were the Elders of the Hebrew Nation; the Ministers and then there
were the Judges. The Elders of the heads of families were the old people; the ones who
were the family leaders of the people. They would select both the Judges, the ministers
and the teachers. The Judges, in charge of temporal management of the camp, were to
judge the people. The Ministers were to make sure that everything was running; they were
in charge of the midwives, in charge of the water supply; and they were the ones that made
sure that the Manna was shared.
       - 55 -


Then there were the Teachers, who taught the people in all things of the earth. It was
important to teach the people the history that Moses had written. It was their history!
Moses had hoped that most of the people would read it while they were still in Egypt, that
they would make copies of it. But alas, the people enjoyed their lifestyle and times were
busy. Some did read the record but most did not. It was not until the first temporary camp
that many of the Hebrew Nation took the time to listen to the Teachers; to assign the
scribes to make copies of the record; to read it in their tents; to meet in small groups and
discuss the history that was there; to understand the history, who they were as a people
and what made them unique. It was also important when the Teachers were in charge of
this that they taught them things of nations and times; taught them the math and sciences;
taught them how to care and how to understand; taught them of learning and wisdom;
taught them of the things of the earth that they would need to be a righteous people.

Now it was between the Ministers and the Teachers in working with the people and with the
Elders that they began to do the tracing of their genealogies, and to do their writing of their
histories, to make a record as best as they could of where they came from, who their
families were, who the children were; to record times of birth and death and, if not known,
then noting their years or age. There would be a record, a Book of Remembrance, for
each tribe. A book that would tell of the genealogies that all men would know what tribes
they came from and how the tribes related to each other. Moses had plainly taught them
that these tribe histories would be important when they arrived at the temple to do the
ordinances. These things were thus set in motion and the people were sent on their way.

Being a forced march, except for the odd time to provide water or emergency situations
most of the journey was uneventful. The second half of the march here proceeded much
better than the march between the Red Sea and the first temporary camp. The people
were better prepared and looked after each other far better. Moses was pleased with how
the people behaved towards each other and towards him. He found great joy in their
obedience and their desire to learn the laws of the Fathers. Once they arrived at Mt. Sinai
it took several days for the tents to be set up. Instead of doing quick tent setups as they
would do on a forced march, they would set up the larger tents to make themselves
comfortable. Moses had indicated that they would be here for many months. It was
important that they become comfortable, setting their circumstances to proper order.

Once the people were settled and everything was in its place, about a week later after the
Sabbath, Moses again called the Elders of the Hebrew Nation together. He spoke to them
of becoming a covenant people, explaining to the Elders that they may understand, for it
was up to them to take these laws to the Teachers that the Teachers may teach the
people. All people would understand the laws and the covenants that Moses asked them
to make. These were the same covenants that Moses had brought with him into the land
of Egypt.

Now the covenants covered several basic things. But to understand a covenant people,
       - 56 -

we must understand the importance of the covenant made with God. To become a
covenant people means that the people must obey and keep the covenant. It does not
matter if there is one law or ten laws involved. If the people are not righteous in keeping
that covenant even if there is only one law involved, then they are no longer a covenant
people for a covenant people means that they will keep their promises. Thus if they
promise their Father in Heaven or their God that they will do something, it will be done.
They will hold to that covenant or promise, that He can come and check any time He
wished and they would be found obedient to that covenant. That defines a covenant
people! To this point in time, in Moses dealing with the Hebrew Nation, Moses had found
that they were willing to be a covenant people. Moses= heart was full and his joy was
great. For they had been obedient in keeping the Sabbath. They were quiet on the days of
rest. All things were being done as prescribed. They had been obedient in their gathering
of the Manna. They had been obedient in their sharing of the Manna. They seemed quick
to learn that if they did not share the Manna and they gathered too much, it spoiled. Moses
had found great joy in this.

The camp followers had followed them and the Egyptians had come with them. Moses
was aware that a percentage of the people were involved in activities with the Egyptians
and the camp followers: that some foods other than Manna was being brought in; that
some activities that were inappropriate were going on. But, because of the way he had set
the camp up, Moses was also aware that most of the people were living true and faithful to
the covenant that they had made.

So Moses outlined the areas of which he would like to make a covenant with the Fathers.
The first area he spoke of was stipulating a distinct people. In order to do this he felt that
they had to have a prescribed dress. He referred them back to the dress of Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob. For their dress came all the way to the ground and all the way to the
wrist. Their clothes were marked with their tribes. He put this forth for the people to
consider. He spoke of being a nation of priests. In doing so he talked about men who
would carry the power and authority of the Fathers. Many of them had participated up to
this point in time with the patriarchal priesthood. They had given blessings to their children
and had done other blessings in their homes, specific in relation to their families. They
passed this priesthood on that was without father or mother, without beginning and without
end.

It was Moses desire for them to contemplate a people that would hold the lower power and
authority of the Fathers and keys to the higher priesthood; who could speak for the Fathers
and be a righteous nation. He referred them to the story of Enoch that he had written, of
Enoch=s greatness of his city and his people. Moses was very plain with the Hebrew
Elders that this was his goal and his desire, to make a nation like unto the City of Enoch in
his day; it would be a light unto the world. In all ways the God of Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob would shine forth and all the world would know that He was the Creator and the one
true God. The House of Israel would be an example unto the world. They would be known
as a covenant people; a people that would keep their promises; a covenant people since
       - 57 -

their word was their most valuable asset; a people who would not avoid nor try to break
every covenant with excuses; a people who would keep their promises, thus being known
as a nation with integrity. This it would speak well of their God. He was interested in a
nation that would treat the earth with respect, for such was lacking upon the earth. For
men had no respect fo the earth and no respect for the Creator. The Egyptians did not feel
that the earth was alive and many of the other peoples of the earth did not either. Thus
they saw the earth as something to use and abuse, and this they did; they walked not in
harmony with the earth. But children of an upright God, a covenant people, would have to
be conscious of the earth and have great respect for the earth.

He also spoke to them of the Everlasting Covenant; to the importance of keeping and
honouring the Everlasting Covenant; to care for each other physically, emotionally, and
spiritually; to remember the covenant made so long ago before they came to the earth; to
honour that covenant. For to break that covenant was to bring upon them the wrath of a
just God. It also meant that you need to have all things in common; to respect the good
within each other. Not to seek to have one above another but to seek to share; to care for
each other as much as they cared for themselves; to receive the higher law; to receive the
tremendous blessings of the spirit that would come by obedience to that higher law. He
spoke to them of the law of the healers. He spoke to them of the law of circumcision, the
sacredness of it. How it was to be done in the temples. How it would make them a marked
people. How all these things all tied to the Christ.

He talked to them about the law of marriage. He referred back to the record that he had
made. In the record that he had made of the history, he took them back to the time of
Noah. He showed them very plainly in the record where the Fathers had told him that one
of the great sins of the people of the time of Noah was that people chose their own
husbands and wives. They did not honour their fathers and mothers and would not go with
the husband or wife that was chosen for them. But instead they desired to choose their
own and in their choices they looked both on physical form and financial standings, often
selling themselves to those who would provide the most for them; selling themselves that
they could prosper and enjoy the bounty of the earth; not concerning themselves with the
gifts of the spirit or the gifts of the Fathers. Moses explained to them very plainly that if
children chose their own husbands and wives that this was a dishonour to the fathers and
the mothers. He explained to them that to dishonour their fathers and mothers in this way
would, in the end, bring the wrath of a just God upon them. For the Fathers had ruled that
if people who go after that which they choose; they are a prideful people and are on the
path of destruction; and to do so is to dishonour their father and the mother.

He spoke to them of divorce that they had seen among the Egyptians; such was against
the laws of God. In a covenant people there was no divorce.

He spoke to them about the laws of disassociation. This was important. They were to
become a distinct people and they had spent some time cleansing their inner self. They
would yet take time to cleanse their outer self. They would take time to cleanse their soul
       - 58 -

and their spirit, their thinking and their talking, their actions and their feelings. If they
associated with people who=s thoughts were impure, who=s actions were impure, who=s
intentions were impure, who sought after the things of the earth and did not respect the
earth, by so doing they would lead themselves to destruction. Thus he encouraged
separation, because separation would allow them to become a distinct people, they would
honour the promises and the covenants and not be easily tempted to walk in the other
ways of other people.

All these areas of the covenants were read to the Hebrew Ministers, the Hebrew Elders
and the Hebrew Teachers. They were asked to take these concerns to the people; to
explain them fully to the people; to make sure that everyone among the Hebrew Nation
understood plainly the covenants that Moses was looking at; to make sure these were the
covenants they were willing to make; to make sure these were the covenants they were
willing to honour. At his direction these covenants were taken to the people. Each group
of fifty, each group of ten all were reported through the Ministers and through the Elders to
Moses. The report back was that all the people understood and all the people agreed. It
was with great joy and a heavy heart that Moses headed up to the temple to speak unto
the Fathers. He went to the temple there with Jethro and entered into the Holy of Holies
and spoke with the angel. The command of the angel was that they were to gather on the
third day at the base of the mountain. This was because all the people had indicated that
they would keep the covenants and that they would become a covenant people, then the
promise was that the Father would appear to them; that he would speak to them and give
them the base commands. They would know that these commands were not of Moses but
of the Fathers. They would be able to hear the voice of God. They would know that God
was real. It would burn within their souls that they would know that this is what they should
do. There was no excuse for not obeying the covenants that they had promised to make.
Moses thanked the angel and left. Moses came back to the Hebrew nation to report.

Moses gathered the Elders of the Hebrew people, the Teachers and the Ministers and
spoke unto them. He told them to prepare for three days hence when the Father would
appear unto them and would speak unto them from the mountain. The people had
prepared themselves inwardly by partaking of the Manna. The Manna had cleansed them
inside. Moses said that the next most important thing is to prepare the people on the
outside. So they were to take the clothes and wash them with soap and water. They were
supposed to take the time to ponder on the temple and the significance of having the
Father appear to them and giving them the law. They were to have clean minds. Moses
encouraged them at this point to prepare their minds more adequately by avoiding their
wives for these three days that their hearts might be turned to the Fathers; that their
thoughts might be pure and clean; that they might set their hearts, their minds, their bodies
and everything to order. Then the Father might appear to them and they would not be
consumed in his presence.

In all the records of the people that we have to this day, this is the only record we have
where the Fathers appears to a whole people. There were millions of people who wished
to become a covenant people. The people had prepared and set things to order,
       - 59 -

understanding the covenants they were to make and being ready with the temples to do
the temple work in response to the covenants they had made. This was a most glorious
occasion and Moses looked forward to it with great anticipation.

On the third day, after the people had prepared themselves, and all was set to order, in the
early morning came this bright light that descended upon the temple on Mt. Sinai. All the
people who had been watching in anticipation from their tent doors saw the flaming fire
signifying the presence of the Fathers descend upon the temple mount. They came to the
doors of their tents, for they had all been faced towards the mountain when they were first
set up. As they stood at the entrance of their tents and listened to the voice of the Father
as he spoke from Mt. Sinai for this was a most auspicious occasion, often we speak of
rumblings, noise and thunder but it was a still, small voice who introduced himself to the
people. As the voice was speaking to the people, Moses had scribes assigned who would
record the message that was given to the people, so that the record would be there and it
would be plain and all could have a copy of it. The first thing the voice did was to identify
who he was.

He was the great Ahman. The first man. Our Father. Father Adam. He spoke very plain
of the Christ who would come. He was very specific in a sense that the people should not
worship any other god. In doing so he said plainly that the laws that he would give them
were the laws that they should follow. They should be the preemptive laws in their lives,
that they should remember the Christ who would come. The Christ would come from the
Hebrew people, for he would be born of a covenant people. He went on to speak of the
Sabbath day and the sacredness of the Sabbath day; the importance of keeping the
Sabbath. No one should do work on the Sabbath day and it was a law from the beginning;
it was a law that should be strictly obeyed! He went on to honouring our fathers and our
mothers. He spoke plainly about this with regard to doing temple work for our families. He
spoke of being sealed together as children of an upright God; spoke plainly of it meaning
we respected the choices that our parents make for us in whom we should marry and how
we should conduct ourselves. He went on to the importance of not shedding innocent
blood. He explained that there is no forgiveness for the shedding of innocent blood. He
went on to explain that man should not commit adultery and that there is no forgiveness for
the adulators. He explained that we should not steal or covet each other. He said that a
covenant people must keep their covenants, therefore thou shalt not lie.

He commanded them to care for the earth, for it was alive. It was sacred, to be treated
with respect. He commanded them to care for widows and orphans, that they did not cry
unto him, for this would bring the anger of the Gods upon them. He commanded them to
keep the Everlasting Covenant, to care for each other physically, mentally and spiritually.
He commanded them to treat with care and respect the strangers that would come among
them, for all the children of the earth are the offspring of God.

Jehovah was most plain in his representation to the people. The laws were specific. He
did not try to clarify. The laws were exact and just. It probably took less than a half hour in
       - 60 -

time but seemed like forever. Afterwards the people reported to Moses that they found his
voice hard, because it left no excuse. They found his voice cutting, because it cut them to
their heart and they knew the truthfulness of the law. This was the first indication to Moses
that the people were having some trouble with the covenant that they were to make.
Moses pondered over what the people had told him. For the Fathers had been very
specific in setting up altars. The people should set up altars by their tribes. They should
set up sacrifice and, as in the days of Adam, should sacrifice to the Fathers by the tribes.
And it was done.

Moses sat down with the Hebrew Elders, Ministers and the Teachers of the people. He
explained to them the law of faith and what faith meant, what repentance meant. In
regarding to faith, he talked about the faith required to move mountains. For it was a force;
not of words but a means of doing good. Then he spoke of repentance, and he spoke
plainly of restitution, for repentance without restitution is dead. He also explained very
plainly that although the redeemer would come, their redeemer=s sacrifice would be for
only unrebellious sin. All rebellious sin must be atoned for by the person committing the
sin. Restitution must needs be done. He talked about baptism for the remission of sins.
The importance of doing it in living water and being baptized as a people; that they may be
a covenant people. He spoke of the gifts of the spirit. The Holy spirit attended all people.
Moses wished that all men would be prophets, for it must needs be so if you are to be a
nation of priests. He spoke of the base laws that these people must have before they are
baptized. They must be willing to commit to this covenant.

Part of the covenant that Moses gave to the House of the Hebrew Nation also had to do
with the care of the widows and their orphans. Father Adam spake unto the Children of
Israel. He was very clear, that at all times, under all conditions, under all situations, that
they were to care for the widows and the orphans. Those who were born under the
covenant, who live under the covenant or are a covenant people must always be
concerned with widows and the orphans. There is no greater offence unto the Fathers
than to hear the cries of the children who are not cared for or have no fathers; to hear the
cries of the wives and their sorrows; the lack of the necessities of life. There is no more
serious crime then a cry of a widow who cries in vain because she has situations that she
can not handle and there is no one who would help her and no one to advise her. This is
always most grievous to the Fathers. Unless the people are willing to accept and live this
law, the Fathers want none such to dwell with them. Those that are found not caring for
the widows and the orphans are sent to the Telestial kingdom or become Sons of
Perdition. For the Fathers are grieved and the healing angels are removed from among
such people.

Moses finished presenting these covenants unto the people and unto the House of the
Hebrew Nation. They were presented first to the Elders, to the Judges, to the Ministers,
and to the Teachers and carried out to the people, who said they promised that they would
obey. Moses went back and cried unto Father and said that they have covenanted, that
they will keep these laws. Moses was directed that he should go with Jethro onto the
temple on Mt. Sinai. As the presence of the Lord was upon Mount Sinai, it was now
       - 61 -

sacred. Only those who were worthy were allowed to walk on the temple grounds from this
point on; for it was deemed holy unto the Lord. Thus those who went up on the Mount had
to change their shoes before going for all the Mountain was sacred. Before Moses left with
Jethro to go to the temple, he sat down with Aaron, with the Elders of the Hebrews, with
the Ministers, with the Teachers, and with the Judges and giving them direction for what
they should do while he was gone.

This is the direction that Moses gave unto the Hebrews first, to do the ordinance of
baptism. To become Children of God it must be performed in a proper manner. As we are
born of the blood of the Christ, it is important that among the people we make up red
clothing; that all those that wish to baptized might wear. For those who are baptized into
the blood of the Christ must wear red at the time they are baptized. Because of the large
number of people that must be baptized at this time, it is prudent that we should have as
many clothing changes accessible as what the people will need . Moses said, AJethro and
I have been baptized properly when I dwelt among the Medians. As both I and Jethro have
the power and authority of the Fathers, we will begin by baptizing the senior Elders of each
tribe. Once they are baptized, each of the senior Elders will begin baptizing the fathers by
their groups and by their fathers and family groups. The fathers will baptize each member
of their family who is over the age of twelve. The father will be responsible for baptizing his
sons. His sons will be in charge of baptizing their wives and their children. And so on down
through the generations so that each person will have the opportunity to be baptized.

Now during our sojourn here in the wilderness we have had many births and we also have
had many deaths. There were widows and orphans among us before we left the land of
Egypt and there are more now. It is the responsibility of each of the Elders of each of the
tribes to make sure that someone is assigned or that they themselves personally care for
the baptism of all the widows and orphans over the age of twelve, that no one is left out
and no one is forgotten. As each of them is baptized, then it is the same responsibility of
the Elders and of the fathers to make sure that everyone is given the gift of the Holy Spirit.
That is done by ordination and from the fathers to each of their children and their wives and
down through their generations that all may be given the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is done
in small groups that its sacredness would be honoured. At no time should the group be
larger than fifty people. At times a few more or a few less does not matter but it is
important that we keep the group small so that the spirit is strong and each person feels
involved and each person feels a member of the group. So as much as possible it is
considered important, that we keep the group small when we do the ordinations.@

ANow the manner of baptism is this: after the person who is being baptized is dressed in
red, he or she is taken by the person who is doing the baptism into the water. For the
person who is doing the baptism, the procedure is have the person who is being baptized
raise his right arm to the square, willingly assenting to each of the following covenants or
promises, the twelve covenants they should make are these:

       First         They covenant that they love God with all their heart, might, mind and
       - 62 -

                     strength. They give ascent.
       Second        They Covenant only to worship the true God, Eloheim. Again they
                     give ascent.
       Third         They covenant not to steal. Again they give ascent.
       Fourth        They covenant not to lie. Again they give ascent.
       Fifth         They covenant to honour their father and their mother. Again they
                     give ascent.
       Sixth         They covenant not to commit adultery. Again they give ascent.
       Seventh       The covenant to keep the Everlasting Covenant. Again they give
                     ascent.
       Eighth        They covenant to keep the Sabbath day sacred, Holy unto the Lord.
                     Again they give ascent.
       Ninth         They covenant to care for widows and orphans. Again they give
                     ascent.
       Tenth         They covenant to care for the earth. Again they give ascent.
       Eleventh      They covenant not shed innocent blood. Again they give ascent.
       Lastly        They covenant to care for the strangers and treat them with respect.
                     Again they give ascent.

Once this has been done, the person doing the baptism calls unto the Fathers. Then
calling the person by name. The person doing the baptism would say, ABy the Power and
Authority of the Patriarchal Priesthood, I baptize you to become a child of God in the house
of Israel. For this day are you washed in his blood, that you may be forgiven of your
unintentional sin, that you may take upon you his name and become his children, by the
will of Christ, the Redeemer, it is so, Amen.@

He then would baptize a person under the water. This was done to each of the people that
they would understand plainly the covenants that they were making, for then they would
become a covenant people. Those people that would make this covenant or make a
covenant and live it, they would then become the House of Israel, for no longer would they
be the Hebrew Nation. From this day forth and this week forth they become the House of
Israel. As these directions were given, Moses turned to the Elders, Teachers and Ministers
asking if there were any questions. Moses said, AThese next five weeks or so I will go up
the Mount. While I am gone Aaron will be in charge. You are to come to him with
questions of judgement and questions of issue that all questions of judgement and issue
will be dealt with while I am gone. A Moses turned to Jethro and said. ANow let us go up to
the Mount that we may prepare the people and the temple that all things may be put into
readiness, that we may receive the fullness of the law. Once we have received the fullness
of the law and we understand it=s application then we may come and present that to the
people to find whether or not they will accept or reject the fullness of the law, for they will
then be a nation of priests.@ So Moses and Jethro left. The Teachers and Ministers went
to the base of the mountain, with Aaron and the Elders where Moses and Jethro waited for
        - 63 -

them.

Jethro and the Elders of the Hebrew Nation built an altar made with twelve rocks. The altar
was made out of dirt so that he may bring forth animals and do the sacrifice and the dirt
would absorb the blood. Moses then offered the Elders of the Hebrew Nation and Aaron
the Feast of the Sacrament with the Passover lamb, the bread and barley beer so that the
leaders may understand this ordinance and it=s significance so that they can tie it to the
ordinance of baptism that they would be performing on the Hebrew Nation while he was
gone. It is noted by Moses that, during this Feast at the base of the Mountain, that the God
of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob appeared to the seventy Elders and Aaron. They could see
him standing on the Mount; the Elders could see him in his glory. It is for this cause and
because they had a special witness and a sure knowledge of the God of Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob, and the God Jehovah that Moses would hold Aaron and the House of Israel to
the higher standard upon his return. It should be noted that at the time that Moses did the
sacrifice of the lamb at the base of the Mount in preparation for the feast, because of the
number of men involved from the House of Israel, many lambs were slaughtered. As the
lambs were slaughtered for sacrifice, the blood was collected by Moses. Some of this
blood was then sprinkled on the altar and some of this blood was then sprinkled on Aaron,
the seventy Elders and Jethro and then upon the people as they watched all this occur; the
rest of the blood was sprinkled on the ground. Moses told them that this was the sealing
of the covenant that they had made, in the blood of the lamb, the redeemer of the House of
Israel, the Christ. They could see both the offering of the Passover and the sacramental
bread, the Feast of the Passover. In doing these ordinances after baptism, they would be
remembering the Christ. Moses and Jethro then left for the temple at Sinai.

The Elders under Aaron=s direction continued the baptisms, each by tribe, by units and by
groups and families. So all the house of the Hebrew Nation was baptized. Now this was
carried out in the river. For it must needs be that the ordinance to become the Children of
an upright God to receive the fullness of the covenant, it must be done in a river. For the
water must be living; for all things are alive. Near the end of the process of the baptisms at
the river many of the members of the House of Israel noticed that the Egyptians were
starting a feast. It was a feast the Hebrews used to celebrate when they were with the
Egyptians. They missed going to the feasts. Many of the wives sought out Miriam that she
might intercede. They approached Miriam and said, A Miriam, these many days we have
been in the wilderness our life has been so boring, all work, travel and feeding our families.
Except for a little dance at the Red Sea, we have not had a feast. Everything has been
heavy. We have traveled far. We have spent much time in preparing for our ordinance at
baptism. We have performed the ordinance of receiving the Holy Spirit. Long has been
our serious time and there has been no joy or dancing among the House of Israel. It is not
good that we do not celebrate more. It is hard on the people. The young people are
restless. They would like to be actively engaged in activities. They are used to going to
feasts at this time of year. Surely you could approach Aaron and see whether or not it
would be all right if we could go and also celebrate the feast. We could celebrate the feast
with the Egyptians, for they have a day or two left of their feast. Ask Aaron if that which we
feel is not so and if it would be all right.@ Miriam thanked them and went unto Aaron=s tent
       - 64 -

and had an audience with Aaron, presenting to him the concern of the ladies and of the
young men and women, presenting the long time in the desert, the act of having a feast,
their desire that they could celebrate. Miriam brought up the camp followers, Miriam said,
AThe camp followers had come with much barley beer and the Egyptians were being able
to enjoy all of it, and we did not have our share. It would be a good thing if the people
could celebrate. While we were celebrating with the Egyptians in the last days of their
feast, so that we would not dishonour our God, Aaron, why would not thou create
something that we may honour at our feast that we may have something to represent the
God of the Hebrews. I mean, do we not like to eat? We are tired of eating only Manna.
We have eaten sheep already at our last feast. Would it not be good to have a feast for
the calf? Then we could eat the calf. We could eat many calves, for we have many that
we could eat and that would be good. The camp followers have brought some nice
yearling calves that we could prepare and it would feed many people. You could prepare
those things while we were finishing the feast of the Egyptians. If our feast went on longer
then they would envy us because we have the longer feast. Would that not be wonderful
Aaron?@

Aaron could see that the people would be very pleased with him if he did that. Aaron said,
AYes, that is very good Miriam. I think it is good that the people celebrate and have fun
and think well of us. Then they will listen to us and take direction from us, for they will like
us. That is good. I will make it so. Go tell the women and the young people that they can
go over and celebrate the last two days with the Egyptians and I will prepare the feast
here.@ So Miriam did. She went with the young people and the women and those who
wanted to go and headed across the river and celebrated the feast with the Egyptians.
Now the Egyptians did not always appreciate wearing the dress and being fully clothed for
it was the desert and it was hot. So there were very many interesting events at their feast.
The young people enjoyed them immensely. When the feasting was over after their feast
had gone on all night and into the next day, the people came back and slept. On the third
day, Aaron had worked hard with many of the leaders of his tribe. Under his direction
Aaron had organized this huge feast with many hundred calves that every one could
celebrate and have a feast. He asked the women to go out and gather the Manna, so they
could have some Manna for there was only unleavened bread from the camp followers. At
the same time he had bought much barley beer from the camp followers and many spices
for the calves so that they could eat and participate and enjoy the feasting and the dancing
that they would have. This would be a wondrous meal. For they have been cleansed
already and they had received the covenants. It is a good time to feast and dance. And so
they did feasted, danced and celebrated. Many became very drunk, thus participating in
much inappropriate behaviour.

Being that they were a covenant people, because of the covenants they had made, many
of the Elders of the other tribes were gravely concerned over what they saw. They asked,
A Aaron, why does thou you doest this thing? Do you not remember that Moses
commanded us just to have three feasts?@ Aaron was wroth with them and their attempts
to correct him. Aaron looked at them and said, ADid not Moses put me in charge? Am I not
now a prophet to the people? Because I am in charge, do I not speak for God? Do you
       - 65 -

think that I would lead this people astray? For surely if I would lead them astray, God
would strike me down. Am I not still here? You have heard him speak from the Mount, so
he is watching over us! For God would strike us dead if we committed sin. You know
nothing we do, no action that we do, is improper. God would not allow it to be! We are his
covenant people; we are the children of God. So why are you Elders so grumpy? Why do
you find fault with those whom Moses has put in charge? It is not good to find fault with
those whom Moses has put in charge of this people! You are breaking the covenant of
Honouring your father and mother by doing this. Surely by your actions and thoughts you
should bring upon this people the wrath of a just God now. Go to your tent and ponder that
which we have spoken. For this day we shall feast, it will be so! We shall feast on the
calves and there shall be much food and much barley beer. We shall feast into the night
and on the morrow.@ And it was so!



During this period of time, Moses had been with Jethro on the Mount, preparing the
Temple and making sure that they understood the ordinances and the laws. Moses had
gone into the Holy of Holies taking with them the rock that Jethro had brought. God had
touched it with His finger and in it He placed knowledge of the earth and the heavens. It
was a symbol to all the nations of the earth that the light of Christ or the God of Israel,
Jehovah, was here among this people and it would mark the way back to the presence of
Christ=s father next to Kolob. If the people wanted to go to the temple, it would be placed
at the temple door to mark the way that they could go up to the temple. He prepared many
such smaller stones, but the main stone Moses carried with him.

Moses and Jethro returned to see the house of Israel. Now the day they returned on and
the reason they returned is because it was the Sabbath day and they wished to rest from
their labours at the temple, to ponder the things that the Fathers had told them, to ponder
the things of the temple ceremonies and the ordinances that the people would take upon
themselves so that they could truly become a nation of priests. Becoming a unique nation.
Just before they left, as they were in the Holy of Holies, the angel appeared unto Moses.
The angel commanded him that he should leave immediately, for the people were about
activities that were improper and the leaders of the people were leading them astray.
Great was the offense unto the Fathers for the people were already breaking their
covenants after so few days. Of course, with a heavy heart, Moses and Jethro came down
the mountain path from the temple to the camp of Israel. As they approached the camp of
Israel, it was in the morning and the sun was beginning to rise. Moses had with him the
precious stone from the Holy of Holies. His favourite stone that would light the way that all
people could see the light of Christ and its power. As he came down near the base of the
mountain he heard the feasting and the carrying on, the laughter and the gaiety. He turned
to Jethro and Moses said, AIt is early in the morning, and yet the people do not sleep.@
Jethro said, AMy heart is heavy for it seems the people have forgotten their promise they
made so short a time ago. It is not normal that the people would be so quick to forget their
God, but I do hear their laughter. It is not a good thing. It is not a good sign for the sun is
rising and the Sabbath is beginning. They are not rested. Their hearts are not in the place
where they should be.@ The closer they came to camp the more they saw and heard the
       - 66 -

noise, the music, the revelry, and the dancing. To Moses it seemed like the camp was
alive and on fire. No one could have slept through all this noise all night. As he
approached Aaron at the head of the tables of the feasting, Moses cried in anguish, AWhat
have you done? You are my brother, what have you done that you of all people would lead
these people astray?@ In anger Moses did throw down the rock that he was carrying,
shattered it; the pieces ceased to glow. Moses looked at Aaron and said, AAnd so will the
light of Christ depart from these people. For in so short a period of time they have
forgotten the covenants that they were making while I was gone. Do you not understand
why I went to the temple on the Mountain? I went on the mountain and on the seventh day
did you not see the fires descend from heaven? A continuous fire did sit on the temple and
yet it was not burned. The voice of Jehovah cried unto me to come into the temple. Jethro
and I went into the temple. Did you not see it from down here? Did you not think that we
were about the work of the Fathers? Did you not see us put the small stones along the
path so that all could see who would go up on the mountain? They were stones that would
give light so people could see both day and night. I carried with me this large seer’s stone.
I had learned the language of the Gods and the laws of the Gods that we as a people
should live. I brought the stone so that the people could see the laws and know the laws
that we should obey. The Fathers had told me that I should come down. In anguish of
heart I did observe what disobedience you were doing regarding the law! Did you think that
I should not know? You made wooden calves for the people that they may dance and
carry on and feast before them. Those wooden idols which you have made offend the
Gods of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Did not the Elders of Israel come to you?@

AElders come forth for I wish to speak unto you! Where are the Judges?@ The Judges,
Teachers, and Elders came forth from their tents and presented themselves before Moses.
Moses asked, ADo you think that which Aaron did was proper?@ Moses looked out across
the people and said, AAny man who will hear my voice, if there is any tribe which will stand
for that which is right, let them stand forth!@ Moses said, AIf there are such men or such
tribes, let them show forth! I will go unto the Fathers in the temple. No tribe stands forth;
I grieve at what I see and I know the anger of the Fathers for great has been their
presentation towards you and their acceptance of you. Yet exceeding has been your
rejection of them!@ He glanced over the people and he went back to the Mount. He
motioned to Jethro that he would go alone. He must grieve in the Holy of Holies and must
speak unto the Fathers. He ascended unto the mountain again to go to the temple there.
He went into the temple and went into the Holy of Holies and called unto the Fathers. The
angel said, AWhy are you troubled?@ Moses said, AMy soul is troubled before the Fathers
for what I have seen the people do this day, and have to report to Father Ahmen what I
have seen the people do. They are a people who love to feast and celebrate and take not
seriously the covenant and promises that they have just made. They love the things of the
earth and not the spiritual things of God. They take pleasure doing what makes them
happy now. They take no thought for tomorrow and what should occur. It is only that
which pleases the flesh that they seek for and enjoy. Great is the anger of the Fathers
towards this people. The worst situation is that it was Aaron who lead them astray. Why
did he do what he did? Aaron stated reasons why he lead the people so but the reasons
are not acceptable. Aaron=s attitude is not acceptable to me, let alone the Fathers.
       - 67 -

Aaron=s conduct is not acceptable before the Fathers. I have pondered much what we
would do with this people. Even though some of them are soft, there are but few.
Because their numbers are so few if we were to clean the people up immediately, there
would be almost no one left.@ The angel spoke, ABy breaking the Urim and Thummim
that we had given to you, you have preserved the people. To possess it would have raised
their level of accountability before the Fathers. If it had been that they had received the
higher law, they, by law, they must have been destroyed. No people can stand before the
Father, and partake of his presence and act so. Corruption of the flesh, and thus the sin
within them, would be burned in his presence and they could not stand it. And now I,
Jehovah, can not walk with this people nor do I wish to walk with this people. From this
day forth a messenger shall be sent before you and the people to mark the way. You are
commanded to move your tent to the outside of the camp and not be a part of the Hebrew
people from this day forth. You will also move to the outside of the camp the tents you
use; to meet with the Elders of the House of Jacob at the edges of the camp. You may
feel of my presence and my spirit. The presence of the Christ can no longer go before the
people nor can it dwell with the people. The angel of God or the Holy Spirit must be the
agent of the Fathers that takes care of them. They can not receive the higher law nor can
they receive the greater gifts of the spirit.”

“The leaders were not valiant in standing up to Aaron. Thus they too must be accountable
for that which was done. Always must the leaders of my people be willing to call attention
to a false prophet, and correctly identify him. They must be plain that the people may
discern between a true prophet and a false prophet. They should mark the path and walk
correctly before me. If they do not do this then I can not dwell with them and my spirit will
not dwell with them. My spirit can not be in a house of disobedience, a house of rebellion.”

“So Moses return unto the people for there are some there, even though you caught them
at the feast, they are not shamed but continued to feast and dance. There is just no
shame among them. I will require the House of Levi to be true. They must clean up their
own tribe. Have them slaughter those of their own tribe that continue to feast. Burn the
wooden calves. Take some of the ash to the family heads that they may sprinkle it on their
water and drink it that they may know that I disapprove of that which they have done. Do
as I have commanded you!@ Moses returned down the mountain side. It was now late
afternoon. True were the angel=s words there were those of the tribe of Levi who were still
celebrating the feast. True to the angel=s word, there stood from the house of Levi an
army ready to cleanse and do the will of Moses. Moses commanded the army to slay all
the remaining party goers as a witness unto the tribes of Israel that the Father will no
longer tolerate such abuse of his law. The remaining celebrators of the feast were
slaughtered. Because of the late hour they were left there to be buried in the morning. In
the morning all the House of Israel came to see the slaughter of the feasters. Great was
the wailing and sorrow on the part of the families. Great was their anger towards Moses,
for he had ordered the slaughter of their children and friends. The Levites blamed Moses
personally. As they expressed their anger to the Elders, Ministers and the Teachers they
came forth wailing unto Moses.
       - 68 -

AHold your peace for I will move my tents this day. Both the tent of meeting and my
personal tent will now be moved outside the camp. I must do as the Father commanded
me and it must be done.@ In the morning Moses came forth and called unto the Elders, the
Judges and the Ministers of the people and ask that they come to the tent of meeting that
he may speak with them. And they did. He asked them to gather the people that he may
speak plainly unto them for the actions of the people had greatly grieved the Fathers and a
just judgement was to come upon them, but not all at once, but in stages.

Moses asked that the people be gathered. The Elders, Judges and Ministers went out to
gather the people. As they gathered the people together Moses stood by his tent and
spoke unto the people plainly that they may hear him. Moses asked for silence that they
could hear plainly that which he was speaking. Moses asked the scribes to make record of
it for he was not convinced that all the people could hear him nor that they wanted to.
Moses wanted the record sent forth among all the people so that every one would know the
feelings of the Fathers about the events that had occurred. He spoke unto the House of
Jacob plainly that the Fathers were very angry with them. The Fathers had spoken of the
destruction of the entire House of Israel. Moses said, AI spoke plainly with them that there
would be no one left then. Therefore the Fathers took a second look at the number of
people that would be left, for all that would be left would be the children and the old people
or the seed of Moses. There were not sufficient numbers that you could raise a righteous
nation out of so few for many generations .@ Moses reported to the people that the
Fathers turned to him and spoke very much against Aaron and his in-laws, the House of
Levi. The Fathers had made a decree and it would go forth till the end of days: because of
the rebellion of the House of Aaron and the House of Levi, they shall be servants unto the
House of Israel until the end of days when their restitution will be complete. They will be a
servant to others in the physical things of the earth, for the spiritual things of the earth will
be held back from them as a group. They will be responsible for taking care of the
Tabernacle and administering the law and administering the temporal affairs of the people.
They are a cursed group and only temporal duties will be assigned them. Because of this
curse and required restitution, those who are of the House of Levi can not be called to be
prophets. They can not be called to judge spiritual matters. They are forbidden to lead the
people. They are forbidden to enter the Holy of Holies even though they are the servants
of the temple; the exception being the High Priest who once a year will be allowed to go
there for one duty only. Other than that the people from the House of Levi were absolutely
banned from the Holy of Holies, for they must be kept from the presence of God. The laws
of justice demand this for leading the whole House of Israel astray. By leading the House
of Israel astray Aaron placed a stumbling block before the House of Israel. Thus all the
other twelve tribes were unable to participate in the fullness of the gospel, because the
feasting that Aaron and the House of Levi committed was a grievous sin. They desired to
rule over the House of Israel. They sought to please the House of Israel by holding their
feast and their celebrations, giving them a feast which was not commanded of the Fathers,
hopeful that they would win favour in their sight and the people would follow them. For this
cause Moses declared to the House of Levi that they would have to give away all their gold,
their jewelry, their money and all their precious items. They would not be allowed to be in
possession of gold or jewelry and in order to lose their wealth; they would have to give it to
       - 69 -

the other tribes of the House of Israel. From this day forth they would not be able to wear
any jewelry that belonged to them personally. The only things of value that they would be
allowed to wear would be vestments that they would wear in the participation of the duties
of the priest for the House of Israel. This was to teach them that it is the Fathers who own
all the possessions of the earth and we are but servants here to care for each other: also to
make an example of the House of Levi. The Families of the House of Levi could maintain
those possessions that they would need to put them in minimal comfort and cover the
necessities of life. By giving up their possessions they would thus never have the financial
ability to organize a feast, or to purchase the food or drink needed for a feast. It was also
decreed by Moses that the House of Levi could not have direct access to the outside of the
camp. That as a tribe within the House of Israel whether they were walking or camping
they always had to be in the centre. They were being denied access to the camp followers
and the others of the House of Egypt; for they had demonstrated most plainly that they are
not worthy of trust. If given the opportunity, they would bring in those things which would
cause the other people to commit sin. This would not be allowed by the Fathers.
Thus was the House of Levi removed as a tribe of the House of Israel; they were no longer
considered a tribe. They were no longer allowed to have a banner; no longer allowed to
have a symbol representing their tribe. They were only servants of the other twelve tribes.
They were forbidden at this time to be in the army, to be watchmen who would guard the
outside of the camp, for they were deemed unworthy to protect the other members of the
House of Israel. The fear was that again they would either not do their job well or that they
would make allegiance with either the camp followers or the Egyptians and bring harm
upon the House of Israel as a whole. Thus they were only allowed to be in the service of
God and the people.

Those of the House of Levi and the House of Aaron were then given a priesthood that was
named after Aaron which is called the priesthood of Aaron or the Aaronic Priesthood. This
priesthood is unique to this earth and it is not on any of the other earths of our Fathers
creation. It is unique on this earth to the time of Aaron through to the end of time when the
restitution from the House of Aaron will be complete. When they again, in the end of days,
offer an offering unto the Lord in righteousness and in obedience, then will the cycle of
restitution be complete, and then will the Fathers accept their restitution for the great sin
committed wherein they were in the Sinai Peninsula and at the temple of God.

Any disobedience to any of these laws was death! Remember when Moses had come off
the mount that morning the people were feasting on the Sabbath day. He had called them
to repentance and the other tribes had left, only the tribe of Levi had remained. Moses had
gone back up to the mount to talk to the Fathers. On his return, those of the House of Levi
were still partying. Moses then called upon the Elders of Israel, specifically of the tribe of
Levi, to bring forth their armed men who were still armed, and they did. Moses then
commanded them that they slay their brothers and their sisters, so that all who were still
participating in the feast would be slaughtered, and it was done! Great was the cry among
the House of Levi that night. So many of their young people, the strong and the fair had
been slaughtered by their own brethren of the House of Levi. Moses had talked plainly
with the Fathers, when he was on the mount, regarding the destruction of the House of
       - 70 -

Israel and there was not much left. So the Fathers decided on a pruning action rather than
a whole scale destruction of the House of Israel. The Fathers decided to begin first with
the House of Levi to begin the pruning within the House of Levi. Part of the law that Moses
gave the House of Levi was that they were not allowed to hold the priesthood or the Power
and Authority of the Fathers. This was a banishment from this priesthood because of their
rebellion until the end of days when their restitution cycle would be complete.

It may be well be asked why Moses at this time did not also slay Aaron and Miriam. The
concern that Moses had put forth to the Fathers and was accepted by the Fathers was that
if Aaron and Miriam were slain this day in their wickedness, for they had led the whole
House of Israel to sin. So great was the sin that they had brought upon the House of Israel
and so great would be their restitution, that it would be impossible for them, if they were
slain in their sins, to ever do sufficient restitution. Thus they would have to be destroyed by
the worm. So in softness towards Aaron and Miriam, that they may have a chance at
salvation their lives were spared, but restitution was required of them. This Aaron and
Miriam never took seriously! In the end they were both taken to spirit prison, where they
still remain. For their fate is sure and in the end of time they will be ordained to receive the
worm.

Now after this, Moses on the next day moved his tent out from among the people. Moses
moved the tent of the meeting house from among the people. He had always been among
them, mostly along the edges, but now he put a large distance between him and the
people. He did not wish to associate with the people that were in rebellion. He wanted it
clearly noted that he was unhappy with them. Moses= Egyptian wife, the Ethiopian
princess also came with him. Zipporah stayed with the main House of Israel.

The following day, (which would be the third day from returning from the mount), Moses
returned to the mount with Jethro that they might receive a law especially made for the
House of Israel. A law for a people who are rebellious. It was specifically made for them
as a law of schooling. It was to be a means of teaching and training those who were of the
House of Israel who had made these covenants to become a righteous and worthy people.

Joshua had come running to meet with Moses, as he came down from the Mountain and
Joshua plainly presented to Moses what was going on in his camp. From that day forward
Joshua walked with Moses. Moses had approached Joshua=s parents asking permission
that Joshua would come to Moses’ tent and be as his son. He, Moses, could teach and
prepare him to lead the people, for the Fathers had absolutely rejected Aaron; and Aaron
would absolutely not have the privilege or task because of his obvious rebellion leading all
of the rest of the whole House of Israel who would follow, astray. Joshua=s parents
agreed. So from this day forward we will find Joshua always in attendance either at Moses’
tent or with Moses in his activities, for it was Joshua=s desire that he would be like unto
Moses. He would prepare himself to become a leader of the House of Israel. Through
Joshua and his descendants came the higher priesthood, The Holy Priesthood after the
Order of the Son of God, or The Power and Authority of God or the Priesthood of God.
       - 71 -

This was handed down through the generations through a group known as the School of
the Prophets, which Moses had setup among the House of Israel. These were men who
were men of valour and men of faith who sought to do the will of the Fathers and be
obedient to the Fathers in all things. Moses would take the time and teach those of the
School of the Prophets; those who would learn the laws and then walk in obedience to
those laws. They would walk in a different manner than the remainder of the House of
Israel for it was their desire to be and live the fullness of the gospel. It was a small group.
In the records it is not noted nor does anyone give them credence. The House of Levi had
the records cleansed and altered in the end, to raise the stature of the House of Levi.

Because if the records gave credence to this group of men known as the School of
Prophets, then it would clearly demonstrate that the majority of the House of Israel was not
obedient to the Fathers. It would indicate that the majority had choice. By walking in
disobedience to the Fathers they were also aware, although the numbers were few, of
those who did walk in obedience to the laws of the Fathers. This group existed down to the
days when the people were taken captive into Babylon. It was always called the School of
the Prophets of which there is some mention in the record. The record is very scarce and
scant in representing those who are of the School of the Prophets. Although mention is
often made in specific times throughout the history in the House of Israel, there is not a
clear and concise record of those who were the School of the Prophets. This was
intentional on the part of the Hebrew Nation for the Hebrew Nation did not want to know,
nor did they want other nations to know, that they were always in constant rebellion to the
Fathers and their servants. Nor did they want other nations, and even sometimes
themselves, to know that there was always a righteous group of people who were valiant in
doing the will of the Fathers. Each member of the House of Israel always had choice
between that which they were doing and that which was appropriate. It is always much
easier to pretend that we have no choice and they were not valiant men of promise. This
was never the case until they were taken as captives into Babylon.

At the School of the Prophets the records of the prophets were kept. Most of these records
of the prophets we do not have this day, nor do we have the record of the School of the
Prophets. The record we have this day is not the same record that Moses gave unto the
House of Israel. Nor is the record of the School of the Prophet known, which was kept
down through the periods of time until they were taken captive into Babylon. The record
we have this day is a record that was pieced together after they returned from their captivity
in Babylon and it was pieced together according to the will and the mind of the people in
that day, approximately 500 B.C.

The Fathers set up the School of the Prophets through Moses. This same School of the
Prophets is known throughout the dispensations of time. The reason that this school was
setup was so any who wished to understand the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who
wished to understand the fullness of the law that they should be living, could come and
dwell with the School of the Prophets and partake of their knowledge, their wisdom and
their lifestyle, their manner of dress and their actions. The people would always have a
place of refuge to go to that they may learn. The people would always be without an
       - 72 -

excuse for their disobedience to the prophets. For this cause has the School of the
Prophets been setup in all the dispensations of time.

The record that we have before us this day that we are making on the life of Moses, we will
not go into the record of the lesser law. The reason being that a man living this law can not
return back to the fullness of the Father, nor can he return back to the presence of the
Christ. For those two laws and those two kingdoms require that men keep the Everlasting
Covenant. This was not a covenant that the House of Israel as a people lived. So
therefore, to study these laws and to explain these laws and to interpret these laws does
not allow one to return back to either to Jehovah or the presence of the Fathers. Thus an
in-depth search of these laws does not seem practical. It is of note that the House of Israel
was denied because of their rebellion to the covenant that they had made in baptism
before the Fathers, full access to the Temple. Under Moses direction they built a
tabernacle with a Holy of Holies that dwelt among the people that the rebellious House of
Aaron and Levi would care for.

The outline and the plan for the tabernacle was not the same as the temple that Moses
and Jethro had built on Mt. Sinai. Never again among the Hebrew Nation would the
Hebrew Nation build a temple like unto Moses’ and Jethro=s temple. The plans for that
temple are not in existence in the Old Testament this day. All the records we have of the
temple are the temple of the tabernacle or the lesser law. Wherein the House of Israel
went in to be blessed and to be ordained, that those of their ancestors may have an
opportunity to become Children of an Upright God. This was the only temple work that was
allowed to occur in their temple until 600 B.C. when the temple was destroyed. It was
again carried on only in part in the temple that Herod built. The temple that the House of
Israel will build under the plan of Ezekiel will mirror this same plan. After the return of the
Christ and the House of Israel again takes upon themselves the covenants and
acknowledges that Jesus is the Christ, their redeemer, then on the Temple Mount they will
build a second temple. The second temple will mirror the temple that Moses and Jethro
built on Mount Sinai, where they wished to take the people through and give them the new
and Everlasting Covenants. Because of rebellion this was not possible. Thus Moses was
only able to build the smaller temple and only able to do the ordinances necessary for
salvation.

Now the prayers they used for the ordinances of baptism and the confirmation of the spirit
were different prayers from those that they used with living people. Because they can not
make the covenants for other people they thus can only provide the ordinances. Those
who are dead must decide which covenants they will or will not make with the Fathers.
Thus only specific ordinance can be done but not the full ordinance.

After Moses had spoken with the people he went back up on the Temple Mount. His heart
was heavy for what he had seen. So he went back on the temple mount and took Joshua.
They went to the temple. Jethro was already there. Moses and Jethro went into the Holy
of Holies. Moses grieved and fell on his face and cried unto the Fathers because of the
       - 73 -

sins of the people, of sins the people had committed before him, of the House of Israel
breaking of the covenant with the Fathers, of their chasing of other gods, of the baring of
their skin in celebration of the feast, and of the horror of having his brother and sister and
their families leading the House of Israel to do evil. Great was his sorrow before the
Fathers. His heart was very much taken down in pain. The angel comforted him much and
found that comfort was not coming unto Moses. Off to the side and above his head, all of
a sudden Moses heard a voice speak most softly, AMoses why does thou weep? It is not
thou who has sinned but it is the people who have sinned. It is not you they have rejected;
it is me they have rejected. For they have chosen to reject the redeemer, the Christ.@
Moses looked up and his eyes were weeping, for before him stood the Redeemer. They
spake one to one as one man speaks to another. Joy filled Moses soul and peace finally
came upon him as he spoke with the Savior. The Savior spoke unto him of his
experiences with other people and other nations and other worlds. How he had gone to
visit them! In all the worlds, nations and people he had visited none had rejected him so
fully as the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He felt that it was not Moses= fault.
Christ said, ADo you not remember all the creations that the angel had shown unto you.
The workmanship of mine hands?@ Moses said, AYes those I have seen.@ Christ said,
AHave you not seen the ends of the earth and the people upon this earth?@ Moses said,
AYes that I have seen.@ Christ said, AThou knowest my handy work. Thou knowest those
who follow my counsel and those who do not. It is not the responsibility of the leader if he
is righteous. It is only the leader=s responsibility if he follows not my commandment and
does not call the people to repentance, does not teach my ordinances correctly and
command the people to walk in truth before me. This you have done all of your days. You
have lost wives over it. Your children have rebelled against you. Now your own family,
your brother and sister rebel against you. This they have done because you have held to
my commandments and my law and you have walked in obedience before me. You have
commanded them the things that I have told you to command them. You have corrected
them when I have asked you to correct them. You have chastised them when I have asked
you to. You have condemned them when I commanded you to. Thus you are my obedient
servant and in all commands you have done my will. Thus I am pleased with thee. As the
angel spoke unto you because of your pleadings with the Fathers, then we will ask you to
go back to your people. Work with Joshua and teach him to be a scribe for such is his
schooling to this point in time. Make unto me two sets of plates. I must go now, but I will
have the angel that attends thee give thee my laws and statutes for each of those two sets
of plates, for they will be two laws and two records unto this people. One will be the higher
law and one will be the lesser law. You may have both records before this people at all
times. That all people may be aware of the law. One set of records will you keep as we
have commanded you to make a tabernacle, in a Holy of Holy, and therein will reside the
lesser plates. The greater plates will reside with those who are of the School of the
Prophets and will reside in their Holy of Holies in their cedar box that you will make for
them. In each of these places the records may be kept; separate laws for separate
people.@ And with that the Christ left.

Moses was again left with Jethro and the angel. The angel gave him further instructions as
to the number of plates required for the writing for each law then sent Moses and Jethro
       - 74 -

back to Joshua and back to the camp. And so they went. At the camp Joshua busied
himself in making up the sets of plates. Going to the goldsmiths, those who would make
the plates, giving them the specific instructions for size, thickness and number required;
thus were the plates made. He took each of them and put rings through them so that they
may be preserved as a set of plates. He thus had two sets of plates. Moses took the two
plates together and with Joshua, for he commanded Joshua that he must come with him
this time. Moses said, AIt is important that you scribe the records accurately, that the law
be kept precisely, that there be no errors made.@ And so it was done.

They took the two records and walked back up to the Temple Mount. They went back to
the Holy of Holies within the temple. Now the angel of the Lord appeared to him and spoke
thru the veil. Since he could not take Joshua into the Holy of Holies so they stood outside
of it, spoke and listened thru the veil; on the other side of the veil stood the angel. He
spoke most clearly giving them the commands and the laws as they should be written. He
commanded that they should separate the House of Jacob into two camps. One camp
would be the children who wished to keep the higher laws and he knew their number would
be few. The other would be the residue of the House of Jacob and their numbers would be
great. He commanded that each of the twelve tribes bring ten men. Their ten men of
greatest spiritual worth forward unto Moses. There would be one hundred twenty men. Of
those hundred and twenty men Moses was to take and separate out the seventy who did
not wish to live the higher law; those would be called the Sanhedrin. The angel then
turned and said, AOf the other fifty it is important that you select twenty five of the most
worthy. Those who will form the council of the School of Prophets. Make sure that in all
things people will understand in plainness that which will be required of them, for I will
require obedience and I will give thee laws. Any breakage of the law will require the death
of the person breaking that law. That way both the House of Jacob and the School of the
Prophets may be pruned that I may raise a righteous generation unto me and that I may
have two people that I may deal with in part or in full upon the earth.”

“So those who choose to be of the School of the Prophets must be those who are willing to
take the greatest risk. For the greater laws will be given them and rebellion will not be
tolerated. Reaction to rebellion will be absolute and immediate death. So of the twenty
five that are finally chosen who wish to be of the School of Prophets then you will have
each of them bring the wife that they are the closest with, the one they can walk as one
with. For it must needs be that there be fifty members in that council of the School of the
Prophets. In the School of the Prophets there will be fifty, twenty five males and twenty five
females. These must be the most worthy females for I will not tolerate rebellion from the
females in this class.”

“In the Sanhedrin there will be seventy males. There will be no toleration for females. For
great is my anger towards those who are of the House of Israel, the House of Jacob, who
have stood in absolute rebellion against my commands and laws. In many cases it was
the women who have lead their husbands astray. Great is my anger towards them.
Because of their disobedience towards their husbands and their rejection of me as their
       - 75 -

Redeemer and their God, they will not be allowed to be in my presence, nor will they be
allowed to stand before my face, nor will I dwell with them, but they will be kept from me.
Only the men of the Sanhedrin will I deal with and only then when they come to the tent of
the meeting. I want no contact with the females of the House of Jacob for my anger is
great towards them and if they came into my presence then with my anger and with their
impurity of thought they would be consumed. Also by their impurity of their actions they
would be consumed. Now they think that they love me and they would be obedient to me
but if they will not be obedient to their husbands whom I have given to them, then they will
not be obedient to me. Great is my anger towards the women of the House of Jacob.
Thus they must be kept from my presence lest I consume them and they would all be
gone. For plain is the law of the prophets, Ano unclean person can stand in my presence!@
For to stand in my presence any sin of body or spirit is ignited, for sin is material and it
alters the body or the spirit such that it spontaneously combusts in my presence.”

“Recall Moses when you first stood before me how I shielded you. If the shield was not
there you would have ignited and burned. Now by your obedience and cleansing are you
pure before me this day such that I may stand before thee in power and glory and yet there
is no tingling, no burning, no destruction of your body or your spirit. This is because you
are clean.”

“Thus those that are not clean, every wit, I will not allow them to stand before me, for I
cannot preserve them and they are physically and spiritually consumed before me. Thus
they are lost! Thus to preserve my children, most of them I cannot ever bring back into my
presence again, unless they are pure. Those of the Terrestial and Telestial are only clean
in part, being brought up to a certain level of purity.”

“Now regarding the School of the Prophets that it may be clearly understood. Among the
School of the Prophets it is required that they love their Father, thy God with all their heart,
might, mind and strength; that the love of their God is greater than their love for their
brother, their sister, their father, their mother or their children. If any of those of their family,
their tribe, or their nation offend me or break my law, they should be brought before the
council of the fifty and be put to death. Those who will not do this must themselves be put
to death, for I will not have an unrighteous people who refuse to cleanse themselves and
be called the School of the Prophets and hold my priesthood.”

“Now among those who are of the House of Jacob, they will be given the same law and
same requirement, but I do know their hearts. They love wickedness more than they love
me. They love their feast more than they love me. They love their lack of clothing and
their dancing more than they love me. They love all around them more than they love me.
If they had to make a choice between love of their God and obedience to my
commandments and love for their father, their mother, their brother, their sister, their
relative, their friend and perhaps even the strange Egyptian within their camp, they would
choose all of those over me. For all those are their gods and they love wickedness more
than they love light.”
       - 76 -


“Were I to carry out my just law before them, all of the House of Jacob would be
consumed. I have not patience for a people who have so many other gods before me. So
I know that I must go through a pruning process with them; they will keep a record of this
pruning process. I know that they will not keep an accurate record of this pruning process
but they will keep a record. The House of Levi will attempt to make a record of my laws
and to a point they will. But I know they will also change my laws and alter my scriptures
and alter my commands and ordinances, for such is their heart. For they love all the things
of the earth and of man and of themselves more than they love me. But of the School of
the Prophets those I will consider the scribes for the House of Israel. Of that class I will
command them to write all the commands of the prophets; all the ordinances that the
prophets, including you Moses, have made. There will always be a record of the
judgements brought upon this people, of the promises made, of the covenants made, of
the laws given. In the end of days when all things are done that this record may be brought
forth that all men may know that I have been plain with the House of Israel from the
beginning; that I have always dealt justly with them. That they have changed my
ordinances, transgressed my laws and broken my Everlasting Covenant, that they made
with me at the beginning. The record will plainly show that I have always plainly shown my
laws and all their angles and degrees; they will know that I am a just God. For this cause
shall the scribes of the School of the Prophets record all of the warnings and messages to
this people. That shall be my record upon this earth to come forth in the end of days.@

Moses commanded such and it was done.

The angel continued, ANow those of the council of fifty and those who walked with them,
among those people they would have the law of consecration. They would have all things
in common that there would be no poor among them, that they would care for each other
all equally. They would not care which tribe they came from, who their father was or who
their mother was, but that they cared for each other emotionally, spiritually and physically,
sharing all things in common and caring for each other as they should. In all their things
the council would have one heart, one mind and one will. Both with the council and with
the people that they would be one with me. I would want to be in their midst and I would be
able to walk in their midst. When they met in the tent of the meeting then I would be able
to walk with them and be with them. Their hearts would be soft and that they would not be
consumed. The men who brought their wives there would have presence before me; their
hearts would be soft and obedient both to their husbands and to me and to you Moses.
But I must be most plain, Moses, your descendants and the descendants of Aaron and the
House of Levi are banned from this council and are banned from this priesthood until they
come full course. Until the restitution has been done and they bring the House of Israel
back again into the fold of the Fathers and rather than lead the people astray, they lead
them in righteousness. Until that experience occurs in the end of days, then they are
banned from holding the greater and lesser priesthoods and the authority of God. Except
you or the council of fifty give special exception then none of the Levites or descendants of
Aaron can be members of the council of fifty or the School of Prophets.@
       - 77 -


ANow among those who are the House of Jacob. They will, through their records and
through the history of time, declare themselves to be the Children of Israel. For I have
seen the way they walk and I know their hearts. They will not want to return to being
Children of Jacob. But they will pretend that they are Children of an upright God and thus
claim they are the House of Israel. Such is not true! For they are the sons of Jacob they
take the covenants; they have not kept them. But they will claim to be of my linage and
claim to be of the House of Israel. This will always be an offense unto me! Now among
those who are of the House of Jacob, it is required that they donate or give one percent of
the tithing that they collect among their tribes to the Levites. Because of the rebellion of
the House of Aaron and the Levites, they are not allowed to own property or have cities, or
to hold wealth. So it must needs be that they are always depending upon others for their
sustenance. I would that they not always be beggars and starving. Though they are your
servants and slaves, it is always important that we care for them and feed them, that they
at least be fed and adequately clothed.”
ANow out of the House of Jacob also will there arise a history that will be passed on
through the dispensations of time. This history will go out to all the nations of the earth and
they will pretend that it is the stick of Judah, but it is actually the record of the House of
Jacob, for they will change my laws and they will change the commands that I have given
them. They will rewrite them and pretend that both you, Moses, and I did not see their
hearts and perceived them as they were; that it is you and I that erred rather than the
House of Jacob; that it was our fault that the House of Jacob rebelled and became no
longer the House of Israel. They are a people that are slow to take upon themselves the
sins that they themselves have committed. They do not like to acknowledge that their sins
will be upon them, will be upon their children through to the third or fourth generation.

Now it is my wish that those of the House of Jacob would take serious thought and look at
the things that they do among these people. For it is my wish, and I know it is yours
Moses, that they would begin again to remember the covenants they made and desire to
become Children of Israel. Those who wish to do so and are not of the House of Aaron or
the House of Levi can be accepted into the School of Prophets. It is my wish and my
desire that the School of the Prophets would become larger than the House of Jacob. If
they seek to do my will and do my commands, then such would be the wish of their hearts.
But seeing their hearts and watching what they have done to you and seeing their rejection
of their Redeemer and their Christ, and their absolute rebellion against him and chasing
the things of the earth, one is left to think that rather than be obedient to the prophets that
the Fathers will send among them, they will torture and kill them. They will hate the
prophets for they remind them of their sin. They do not wish to be reminded of their sin nor
do they wish to be reminded of their scriptures, nor do they wish to be reminded that they
must study the record and that they must have it before them. They do not wish to trouble
themselves with the laws; they wish only to enjoy their feasts, to enjoy the things of the
earth and to play. For that is their desire to be children of the earth, or children of men.

It is not their desire to draw close unto the Fathers, to seek to understand his laws and be
obedient to them. It is easier to pretend that they know the laws but find excuses to break
       - 78 -

them at every hand, to pretend they are Children of Israel when they are not. In the end
the Fathers have seen that they will try to form their own School of the Prophets. They will
raise an unrighteous generation of wicked prophets who will flatter the people. It is
perhaps a sad thing but it is the nature of those who seek to become the children of men
that they wish to raise unto themselves prophets who they proclaim are teachers of
righteousness, but instead of teaching righteousness they are flatters who tell them what
they want to hear. They will not call them to repentance and will not chastise them, will not
command them to set their home to order, will not insist that they be obedient in all things.
Instead, they will tell them how wonderful they are and how much God loves them, and
how lucky they are to be his children. Of this the Fathers speak plainly. They are either
Children of an upright God or Children of Israel, or they are children of Satan. The Fathers
are not happy with those who desire to be children of Satan. Those here on the earth who
do not desire to keep the covenants made so long ago.@



ANow among those who are among the House of Jacob, they will only be given one Urim
and Thummim. The High Priest of the Levites must carry it with him. Over the years and
generations of time other sets of Urim and Thummims will come unto the people and will
be passed among the people, but it is important that at least there is one set. That those
whom I have commanded to be the servants of the people are able to address me through
my Urim and Thummim and know right from wrong. If they do not address me then that is
a sin unto me. If they address me and they are not obedient, that too is a sin unto me. In
the end they will pretend that there is no Urim and Thummim and they will bury them and
hide them hoping thereby that they will not be held accountable for being obedient to the
laws. Such is not the case for I will hold all the shepherds of my people accountable!”

ANow it is important that Aaron and his people when they come forth to do the work in the
temple, that I will set among them by my tabernacle a cauldron, as a sign of testimony,
unto them that the covenant that they had made unto me is dead. It is important that they
be baptized in a cauldron of dead water that will be set on the outside of the tabernacle.
So that they continually remember that they have broken the covenant. They are not a
covenant people but are the House of Jacob. Over the generations of time they will put
many uses to this cauldron, but the cauldron is set as a testament against them. The day
will come that they will build a temple and they will do temple work for the dead. In that
temple they will again have dead water. Always will they know that because of their
rebellion the covenant between me and them is dead. Save they repent, change their
ways and seek to become a covenant people; they will always be to me just the House of
Jacob.@

ANow Moses, in the commands that I will give thee, I command that thou will go unto
Aaron and his sons to ordain them to this lesser order. The House of Jacob will be fully
aware of my rejection of Aaron and his sons and the House of Levi, that they would be
given a priesthood of rebellion. In all ways the people may know that I do not tolerate
rebellion. Therefore Moses I command you to baptize them into this order and ordain them
       - 79 -

to this order in full view of all the House of Jacob, that all may know how I feel.@

ANow regarding the School of the Prophets. It is important that the School of the Prophets
make a primary record. The rings that they keep it on must be large for as the years go on
and the generations go on, the record will grow. It is important always that they make
records or copies of the prophecies that are given the people, and that the people may
have within their tribes copies of the prophecies of the prophets that I send among them.
All the tribes must be aware of the law.”

“Now I do know that the House of Jacob will not read the laws for their hearts are hard.
That is alright. But I require that the School of the Prophets be a house of scribes unto me,
and that they continually make this record and make a record of the teachings of all the
prophets. This record is continually given to each of the heads of the tribes of Israel that in
all things the people may know the law if they so seek or desire to know. Now the School
of the Prophets, that you may understand, will exist until this people are taken into captivity,
at which time the School of the Prophets will cease to exist. Their records will be hidden
up unto me that I may bring them forth in due time. Now many people will leave the School
of the Prophets over time, many will join. But that you may understand fully, Moses, never
at any time will the School of the Prophets be a significant force among this people. For
this people=s hearts are hard and they seek not to do the will of the Fathers. Over time
through the School of the Prophets the Fathers will raise many righteous prophets. From
those righteous prophets some will be sent to other lands to live; some scattered with the
House of Israel and the ten tribes and with the House of Joseph. For it must needs be that
branches will be taken off the olive tree and transplanted throughout the earth. For if they
will not grow in this land, perhaps they will grow in other lands and become a righteous
people unto me. So it is very important that the School of the Prophets be maintained in its
purity for out of the School of the Prophets will come many righteous prophets and nations.
From them will come the seeds that will populate many nations and raise many righteous
people and generations unto me.”

“It is important that each of the members of the School of the Prophets, each of the family
units, have a stone of remembrance. The function of the stone of remembrance is when
they go into the tent of the meeting that they may sit by the Holy of Holies with their stone
where they may receive the genealogies of their fathers; that they may know who their
fathers were. With the information that they have obtained through the stone of
remembrance, they may take these records and go to be baptized and do the ordinances
for their generations who have gone before them that they may write their genealogies and
know their fathers and their generations who came before. It is important that every family
have a stone of remembrance.”

“It is also important that most of the families, if not all the families, have seer stones; that
they may open unto the Fathers and receive revelation; that the spirit of the Christ may
dwell among them: that his presence may fill their tents and fill their personal habitations.
For this cause, it is important that those who are of the School of the Prophets set their
       - 80 -

camps up beside your camp and the tent of the meeting; for I want a clear demarcation
between them and the House of Jacob. I want both the House of Jacob and the School of
the Prophets to know whom I approve of and whom I do not approve of.@

ANow it is important in their schooling, for it will take time for them to absorb this
information and to put it into practice and live it. That is alright for they are to be scribes
and prophets unto me. My spirit will be strong with them. They will be schooled in the
fullness of the law so that they may have the full presence of the Christ with them in their
homes and in their meeting place. Where ever they go they may feel the presence of the
Fathers. Therefore Moses, you are commanded to ordain the twenty five couples who will
begin the School of the Prophets, then they will ordain all those who will become members
of the School of the Prophets, each in their tribe, in their time and circumstance.@

ANow it is important that we may be plain. It is not required that all the children of the
people stay with the School of the Prophets. Each child will be faced with choice; for they
will see the disobedience of the House of Jacob. They will see the disobedience of the
camp followers and they will see the disobedience of the Egyptians. For some it will be
appealing. They will not want to walk among the School of the Prophets. They will not
want to become Children of Israel but children of men. It must needs be that they have the
right of choice. It must needs be that only those who wish to be Children of Israel be
members of the School of the Prophets; that those who are here do so with a joyful heart.
For this is where they wish to be. No person is to be pressured or coerced into being that
which they do not want to be, for such is against the order of the Heavens.@

ANow among the School of the Prophets it is important that there be no alcohol. Never, at
any time, should those who hold the greater and lesser priesthood ever partake of alcohol.
For they do actions when they are under its influence that would contravene the laws of the
Fathers, that if they would say or do anything inappropriate, then they are responsible for
that which they have done. It is a willful sin that they partake of alcohol. Therefore the sins
they commit when under its influence are willful sins for which there is no atonement by me
and thus they must do their own atonement. Therefore those who wish to partake of
alcohol should be stoned or displaced from the School of the Prophets. I will have none
such to be my prophets.@

ANow to the House of Jacob and the Sanhedrin will be give a health law that is fixed and
sure, with the anticipation that after four generations that they will have learned to obey it.
To you will be given a different law, an ever-changing law; depending where you live
depending on what foods are around you; depending on the nature of the soil and the land
and the plants; the corruptness of the animals and the corruptness of the plants; that which
is safe to eat and that which is not. Then the law will be ever-changing to you! Those of
the council of the fifty will ever be correcting and adding, adjusting the law so that those
would know what they should or should not eat. They should know that through the use of
the seer stone and be able to advise each other. They should allow no foods to enter them
that are corrupt so that it would not also corrupt their bodies.@
       - 81 -


ANow among those who are of the School of the Prophets, they should partake of the
Sacrament and the Passover completely. It is important since they are of the Children of
Israel and the School of the Prophets that they live the fullness of my law; that they hold
the fullness of the Sacrament. Once a year at the Passover they will partake of the
sacrificial lamb and of the bread and barley beer. Every year they take stock and
atonement and set to order that which they had done that year. “

“It is also important among those who are among the School of the Prophets that they do
not circumcise their children when they are young; for the law of circumcision is a law of a
covenant. In order for a covenant to be enforced then the covenant must be made of men
and women who are of age. Therefore, among the School of the Prophets, the law of the
covenant of circumcision will be exercised at the time of marriage both on the male and the
female. Those who do not wish to enter this covenant can reside with the children of men.
Only those who wish to fully participate in this ordinance will be Children of an upright God,
or Children of Israel, or members of the School of the Prophets.”

”Therefore in all the ordinances of the Sacrament and the Passover and the feast, these
can be carried on in their homes and their meeting places. For all places will be sacred
unto them. They may, if they wish, attend the yearly feast with the House of Jacob as long
as they do not partake of their wine and their barley beer and keep themselves pure and
undefiled before me. But I think that would be a want and temptation! For unless this
people become separate and distinct, the temptation I feel is more than the people can
bear, Moses. It is not good to test the people so, to push them beyond their limits of what
they can bear for a temptation.”

“Also, among this people, it is required of the women to cover their faces. For it must
needs be that they be distinct from the children of Jacob, that they stand apart and
separate. All people should know that they are of the School of the Prophets and that they
are untouchable. This will both protect them and isolate them. It is done as a means of
protection from those of the House of Jacob. For the House of Jacob are an unruly sort
and at times will seek to take advantage of each other. As a protection unto the women of
the School of Prophets then, they should wear their face mask. Moses, we command that
you should dwell among them and in their midst. As you dwell among them and in their
midst then I will be there with them as a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. When the
people are to move, then I will move my cloud or my fire before you. Now those of the
House of Jacob will not record it as such because they will pretend that the fire was on
their tabernacle. It was not! It was on the tent of meeting, the School of the Prophets; on
the tent of Moses and his wife, Joshua and his wife and Jethro and his family.@

ANow regarding the Children of Jacob who are under the rule of the Sanhedrin; it is
required that those who come to the temple to perform ordinances be sober; if not, I will
shall put them to death! They will have opportunity of taking periodic Nazaritic Oaths. But
unlike the School of the Prophets who are on a continual Nazaritic Oath, the children of
       - 82 -

Jacob will be given an oath for a period of time. They will take it for a period of time. It is
hoped that through the generations that they would learn to walk that way all days, always.
Such does not seem to be their nature. Because they are an unworthy people and I have
rejected them and I have rejected them as members of the House of Israel, then it is
permissible for them to circumcise their children when they are eight days old for it is less
painful, and they are still the seed of Abraham. Only those who wish to be members of the
School of the Prophets and Children of Israel should be circumcised later. Therefore
among the House of Jacob it is alright to circumcise them young. Those of the House of
Jacob should watch from a distance and see the ordinances that take place at the tent of
the meeting, to watch the spirit that dwells with those of the School of the Prophets. It is
hoped that by having such men and such women in tents among you, albeit on the
outskirts of your camp, that those who are worthy among you would desire to walk among
and be obedient to the Fathers and feel the fullness of the spirit.@



ANow Moses, that I may be most clear, Aaron and Miriam and the House of Levi are to be
banned from your presence; that they may come and speak to you from a distance is
alright. It is alright to go and ordain them, but you are to no longer invite them into your
tent nor associate with them. It must be made most clear to the House of Jacob that I have
banished Aaron and Miriam from my presence; that I reject those that rebel against me;
that I have no tolerance for disobedience. Except for special occasions my spirit will not be
upon the tabernacle of the House of Jacob, for I have rejected them and they have rejected
me. For that cause you will call Aaron and make him a servant of servants.”

“On his breastplate shall you put twelve healing stones that the healers may be among the
people that they may learn the healing art of the herbs for they are a rebellious people.
Because they lack the fullness of the gifts of the spirit and power of the priesthood, then
disease will be among them. Those that are diseased must be separated from them. They
must have healers they can go to and perhaps be healed, for many will die. By their
plagues and by their death will I separate them from me for they are a rebellious and a
disobedient people. Strong will be my hand in pruning them that all will know that I am
their God and that I am a just God.@

AThat we may speak of the laws of separation for the laws of separation are required of
those who are of the School of the Prophets, Children of an upright God, that they may be
free of disease. For by attachment, association and by eating with those who are of the
House of Jacob, the camp followers and the Egyptians will they bring disease into their
tents. It is not meet to me that the children born under the covenant of the Children of an
upright God should suffer disease. Therefore it must needs be that they be a separate and
distinct people. They will be derided for that. For the House of Jacob will think of the
Children of an upright God as evil, raising their children in an improper manner. They will
be criticized by those of the House of Jacob for not participating fully in the sins of the
earth. They will be criticized by their lack of association, their lack of festivities, their lack of
disobedience. And as such has been the nature of the wicked people from the beginning
       - 83 -

of time. To criticize those who will be obedient to their God. And so it will be.”

“It is very important that those of the School of the Prophets learn the importance of
washing in the spring water, both their clothes and their utensils; that they understand the
importance of the fresh water versus the stale or dead water, and they use that in all their
ordinances and their cleanliness. It is important among this people that they understand
that the earth must be cleansed and treated with respect and kindness and those that dwell
on the land must be clean. If the people are unclean who dwell on the land then the land
grows hard to them and the land rebels against them. Then the land will refuse to give up
its yield, its crops and its moisture and the sky refuses to give its rain. So the land rejects
the people.”

“In the beginning because of the corruption brought about the children of men, the land
was hard to those who were the children of men. Only among those who were of the City
of Enoch was the land soft. So it shall be throughout the dispensations of time. Those
who care for the land, love it and nourish it, will the land accept; will the earth yield its
bounty and its harvest. For the law given to Father Adam when they were first placed upon
the face of the earth was that those that were obedient to the laws of God would have
moisture in their time. Now rain was not in the time of Adam but the wells were and the
wells were either good or dry. The land would give its fruit and that there would be enough
for all. There would be peace in the land. There would no sword or death in the land. I,
the Christ, would walk among them and be with them. My sanctuary would dwell among
them and they would have Holy of Holies that they may come and converse with me and I
with them. We could become one as a people. Now if at such time and when at such time
the people forget to live the laws that I have given them, then they find panic in the land,
lesions on their bodies, fever. They sow crops that others eat and the people are brought
into subjugation. The land rejects them. The earth acknowledges the feelings of the
spirit.@

ANow Moses you must warn the people that they may know that which is coming; that they
may respect you as a prophet. For the time will come that they will be lifted in pride above
all nations of the earth. I will break their pride! They will have many prophets but only one
or two will I speak with. Yet they will have hundreds. But the heavens will be sealed unto
them and unto those they want as prophets. For I have not sent them nor did they come
from the School of the Prophets. They are men that they themselves have chosen and
invented to flatter them. Their children will die in their infancy; their cattle will die. The
winds will come up and the earth will shake and their roads will be desolate. The sword will
be strong upon the face of the land and many will die.@

ANow in the meridian of time, from out of the tribe of Judah will I come, the Redeemer, to
walk among this people. When I come to walk among this people their hearts will be hard,
they will be a people under bondage and their anger will be great. They will be looking for
a Redeemer, but I will come too as a savior of men=s souls. I will not save men in their
wickedness and disobedience. Great will be their anger towards me for they will wish to
       - 84 -

take my life. Then will the full vengeance of the earth be upon this people. For a time will
come when they will eat their children, their sons and daughters for want of hunger.
Great will be famine in the land. The great buildings they have built will be destroyed; the
great temple that they have will be ground to nothing. The land underneath the temple will
be planted and harvested. The idols that they have fashioned to their fish and animal
gods, and to the idols that they placed and worship in their groves, those I will destroy.
The city will be laid to ruin and the land will be desolate. It will become a land barren for
many generations. Those who are left of the House of Jacob, who still remain in the land,
will be scattered as a people throughout all the ends of the earth and there they shall
remain till the end of days.@

ANow in the end of days, when the people have done the atonement for their rebellion
against me their God, will I again soften my heart. I will again gather them towards the
land of their inheritance. I will awaken those who are of the House of Jacob that they
should come to a knowledge of their forefathers and the covenants made unto them. In
those days shall a marvelous work begin among their people, both of the House of Judah,
the House of Joseph and among the ten tribes. Among each of these people will arise
prophets, men of stature; they will acknowledge the Christ and be the servants of the
Fathers. They will show wonders and bring forth scripture that the people may again have
the record of their fathers. They may again draw close unto me and learn of my statutes
and my laws that we may dwell together again becoming one nation and one people.@

When the angel had finished giving these commands unto Moses, after the period of many
days, Joshua had recorded all the laws, both the laws for the House of Jacob and those for
the School of the Prophet, when the records were written, when they were checked and
approved by the angel, Moses took each of the records in his hands and carried the two
records back to the people. Among the people he established both the council of the
Sanhedrin and the School of the Prophets.

After Moses had received the law, he came down with Joshua and Jethro and returned to
the camp. Moses set about to organize the camp, setting up his tent with the School of the
Prophets and spending much time with them. Before he had left the temple, he and Jethro
had a long discussion. Because of the nature of the people and their rebellion against the
Fathers, neither could see the time in their life time when the people would have a need for
the full services of the temple. It was with much sadness that Jethro and Moses shut down
the temple, took out the sacred things that were within the temple and closed it, so it would
never be used again during that dispensation or since. That was very difficult for Moses
because it brought to an end his dream of raising of a righteous people, people who would
serve their God; people who would become righteous unto the Fathers and become a
nation of priests for the whole earth. It was with much sadness that he descended from the
mount and began to work with the people; setting to order the commands of the Fathers.
After the people were organized, the tabernacle was built, and the people began the law of
sacrifice, they seemed to settle into a routine. Moses again raised the issue of inheriting
their land of inheritance. He thought it somewhat strange that they were not in a hurry, nor
       - 85 -

did they seem interested in obtaining the land. The people seemed quite content to reside
in their tents to have food brought in by the camp followers, to associate one with another.
They seemed content to not have to till the fields and raise crops: they seemed content not
to have to take care of the animals. It seemed the only tribe that was not content was the
tribe of Levi.

It was some months after the tabernacle was built, leading into the third year since they
had left the land of Egypt that the cloud left the tent of the meeting and the School of
Prophets. It began to go before the people. The people picked up and began to follow as
they headed towards the land of Canaan. It was during this journey that there were several
interesting events. One of the circumstances they ran into had to do with the camp
followers that were following Moses. The people had setup a system whereby they
obtained many of the forbidden foods and much barley beer. The Hebrew people seem to
enjoy the barley beer. By doing so the Fathers were angry with them and began a fire
around the camp. It was only after the loss of many of the people around the edges of the
camp that the fire stopped. Moses saw that this was good because many of the stragglers
who had gone out in search of the camp followers had been consumed as well as many of
the camp followers. For a period of time this had slowed down the trade between the
Children of Jacob, the people to the north and the camp followers.

It was also during this trek that the people now that they were denied their access to the
camp followers for a period of time had come to Moses to complain that there was not
sufficient meat to eat. Moses went to the Fathers to see what the Fathers would do. The
Fathers told Moses that on the morrow the ducks would come in, and on the morrow did
the ducks come in. Huge swarms of ducks, they had been migrating and they were fat.
The ducks saw the Manna and they came in to feed on the Manna. The Children of Jacob
went out and gathered them. The Children of Jacob had not listened well to the
commands of Moses on how to care for animals. So in their preparation of the ducks to
eat, they followed the ways of the Egyptians rather than the way of the Hebrew Nation that
Moses had taught them. He had been careful to give them the law and careful to explain
to them the law, careful to explain to them how to care for such animals that they may not
get sick. But the people were in a hurry and their desire to eat was strong and so they
remembered not what Moses had taught them about the law. They did not follow the laws
of Hygiene. Although there was fresh water there they did not use it. Although there was a
stream that would allow them to prepare the ducks carefully, they did not use it. Most from
the School of the Prophets did use it. They understood the importance of caring for the
animal properly. There were just a few from the School or the Prophets who died. Great
were the lamentations among the House of Jacob, for many thousands and thousands of
the people died and perished. The birds carried with them a disease, as all birds do. If
properly handled and cared for, the people would have been all right. But the Children of
Jacob were not intent on following the letter of the law that Moses had given them. Instead
their desire was that they would do that which they wished. So many thousands of people
perished that day. Great was the illness among the House of Jacob. Great was the
number that died. Some sought for the healers and were preserved, others who would not
listen passed away.
       - 86 -


It was shortly after this, they were coming near the land of Canaan. The closer they got to
Canaan, the more the turmoil grew between Moses and Aaron, Miriam and Zipporah. For
Aaron, Miriam and Zipporah had looked at the wealth of the House of Jacob and the land
of the Canaanites and decided that they would have and rule over both. Aaron was
unhappy that he was the servant of servants. He was unhappy because Moses had been
plain with him that he would not be allowed a land of inheritance among the tribes, that
there would be no piece of land that he could inherit. As far as Aaron was concerned, he
had nothing to lose, for already Moses had taken away many of his sons. He remembered
well the instance where they were setting up to do the sacrifices and his sons were not
obedient to the law that Moses had given them; thus did they die. This caused much anger
in Aaron and he conspired with Miriam and Zipporah, for Moses had disenfranchised all
three of them and their descendants from the House of Jacob. They did not think that this
was proper or fair that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob should be allowed to treat
them so.



Aaron was the oldest and therefore due the birthright. Miriam was his sister. Zipporah=s
father was the head of the chief judge among the Midianites, the High Priests. They were
families of noble birth. Now, according to the law that Moses had brought down upon the
people, they had no place. So Aaron and his family, Zipporah and hers, and Miriam and
her friends brought about a rebellion against Moses. Great was the rebellion, for great was
their anger that they should be the servants for the House of Jacob, that they should care
for all these people and do menial labours and have all this work to do. Then to add insult,
not only did they have to move their own camps and their tents, but they should now be
responsible for the tabernacle; they should be responsible for the sacrifices and the
animals and the doing of all this work. For here they were in the desert and all the other
people sat and watch them work. The royal leaders doing work? They did not think this
was fair! Great was their anger and high was their list of rebellion and great were their
complaints against Moses and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So began the
rebellion.

They brought their complaints to the tent of Moses. They did not respect the distance that
Moses had told them that they must keep from him. By doing so and in walking into Moses
camp, there came upon them the plague of leprosy and they were banished to the outside
of the camp. Zipporah=s children and Aaron=s children went to the tribes where they went
to the head of the tribes, to the Judges and the leaders and cried with wailing against
Moses for that which their parents had suffered; about their banishment totally from the
House of Jacob and having to stand outside the camp, being the untouchables. So Aaron,
Miriam and Zipporah remained for several weeks. After a period of time being the
untouchables, being shunned and banished by all the House of Jacob, they sent
emissaries to Moses to beg his forgiveness, to plead for them that as members of the royal
household and as his relatives that his heart would be soft unto them and he would go to
the Fathers that they could be healed. Moses= heart was heavy and he did miss the
       - 87 -

association of Aaron and Miriam. It was sad for him to see Zipporah and her sons rebel
against him. When it seemed that their sorrow and their repentance was acute, he went
before the Fathers to ask for their forgiveness, and that they would take this curse from the
household. And it was so.

Moses was somewhat concerned because they were approaching the land of Canaan. He
was aware that because of the many deaths within the camp of the House of Jacob, that
the people were more angry with him than ever before, because they refused to accept that
the deaths of their family members was the result of their sin before God. They were
unable to conceive that they were not a righteous people. They had the wealth of the land
of Egypt and they were still the wealthiest nation in the world, heading towards the land of
promise, the land of milk and honey, the land of inheritance. Their feeling was that the
land should be given to them, then they would be rid of Moses, for he was like a bee that
troubled them, and who would sting them on occasion and come back and sting them
again. Their desire was to be free of Moses. Moses realized that these feelings were
among the House of Jacob. Because of this, Moses felt that if Aaron and Miriam were not
before the people, then the people would follow Moses and not have the courage to rebel.
The people hated Moses more than ever because they blamed him for the death of their
loved ones, the death of their fathers and the death of their children. They blamed Moses
for the death of the families; those lost in fire, those that the earth swallowed up. All this
was Moses= fault and they knew that Moses was the guilty party. Aaron and Miriam had
persuaded them that a cloud and fire was just something Moses conjured up to persuade
them that they should be obedient. But Moses had no real power. It was not until the
leprosy came and the banishment from the camp and their humiliation that Zipporah,
Miriam, and Aaron, and those who conspired with them changed their tunes somewhat.
For when the healers came, the leprosy went away and they were whole again. They were
allowed back into the camp after they had done the proper sacrifice.

Upon arriving at the land of Canaan, Moses sent spies throughout the land to look at the
land and report to the people what they had seen and observed. For Moses had been
plain with the Sanhedrin and the School of the Prophets that this was the land that they
should inherit. God had commanded them that they should take the sword and that they
should cleanse the land and that it would be required of them to kill the men and most of
the women and children. This was the requirement of the Fathers that they should inherit
the land. The spies went in and looked over the land. They traveled through the land, the
length and breadth of the land, and came and reported to the Sanhedrin and the School of
the Prophets. There arose among the House of Jacob strong feelings. Moses went down
to the Sanhedrin that he may understand what was the cause of these strong feelings.
Thus Moses sat down and spoke with those who were the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin rose
in rebellion against him. They were plain with Moses. They reported to Moses that the
spies had gone through the land and watched the different people and nations that they
were to slaughter and the report was that they were good people. They built many
buildings and had places of worship; they had much clothing; they were very rich and the
lands were fertile. There was much land to possess and they could go in and dwell among
these people and there was no need to kill. They were not a wicked people nor did they
       - 88 -

seem to do that which was wrong; they were a hardworking people. They could buy the
land and take it over. The people in the land of Canaan could be their servants and their
slaves and do the work for them, then the House of Jacob would not have to work. Moses
was wrath with them. He saw that which was in their hearts, for their desire was to become
like the Canaanites, the Hittites, and the Moabites. Their desire was to take upon them the
sins of the people of the earth, to participate with them in the evil that they did. Moses was
angry with them, so he left.

As he went back to his tent he ran into Joshua and those of the School of the Prophets.
His wrath was still strong as he spoke to them. Moses asked them pointedly, AAnd what
have you found?@ Joshua reported, AWe have found a people more wicked than any
nation on the earth. They were more wicked than even the Egyptians were. They worship
the gods of the earth and did not worship the true God. They had no respect for the laws
that Moses had given them. They did things that were base. If the people would live
among them they would become like them and quickly would destroy the School of the
Prophets and the House of Jacob. Great was the worry that such people would be there.@
 Moses= heart was glad that they saw the wickedness of the people with whom they lived
and could see that their destruction was eminent.

Moses went into the tent of the meeting to the Holy of Holies to talk to the angel that
attended him. As he spoke with the angel that attended him, he presented the rebellion of
the House of Jacob. They would buy the lands and the people would be their slaves and
servants; their desire was to accommodate. They could not see the Canaanite traditions
as wicked. What they saw were favourable things they would like themselves to do. This
greatly troubled Moses. The angel spoke for the Fathers and he said, AIf they can not see
the wickedness of the people around them, then truly are they not ripe enough in iniquity?
Therefore the House of Jacob can not inherit their lands at this point in time. For it must
needs be that they see the wickedness of the people; that they be willing to do the work of
the Fathers and to cleanse the land. Such is not the case at this time. Therefore take the
people and head back towards the Sea of Reeds through the nations taking the animals
with them. Perhaps if they work more and their labours are heavier, for they have not
laboured and their food has been easy, perhaps then they will come to their senses and
they will then be willing to be Children of an upright God. Their hearts are not in that
direction this day. They do not wish to follow your counsel or ours.

If you take them into the land of Canaan, they will not do as you will direct them. Rather
than destroy the wickedness that is there, they will associate, accommodate and
assimilate. Within a generation or two the House of Jacob will be lost. For they see not
the work they do as an abomination to God. They do not understand the horrors and how
the Fathers feel about how they mistreat the land, the way they mistreat each other and the
gods that they worship. Moses took this information and went back to the Sanhedrin to
report.

Great was the anger of the Sanhedrin towards Moses. Many of the Sanhedrin were old
       - 89 -

and knew that if they could not inherit the land during this period of time, they would be
rejected. If they were not able to inherit the land of Canaan perhaps their children would,
but they would not. This greatly angered them. They turned to the people and encouraged
them in their anger to go and fight with the Canaanites. The people could see that their
chance was slipping away and they remembered well the experience of Aaron, Miriam and
Zipporah. So they grabbed their swords and said, AWe will go and we will conquer.@
Again they listened not unto Moses. So the Sanhedrin sent them into battle against the
Canaanites. Many men were lost that day. For the Sanhedrin had assumed that they
could direct the army to go and that the army would go and succeed. They had not
organized them in legions and companies. They had no plan of attack. They had no
assurance from the Fathers that they would be victorious. They assumed in their own
might that they could take over the land of Canaan and rule. But they were soft, soft from
not working, soft from the feast and their heart was not in doing the will of the Fathers. So
many died.

Great was the wailing throughout the House of Jacob for so many of the young and brave
had suffered and died. The Sanhedrin sent a representation to Moses and Moses came to
meet with them. Their hearts were somewhat changed. They accepted what Moses had
decreed would be so but they would be kept from the land of Canaan. As Moses had
directed them, they then asked the people to follow Moses and go through the lands
around them. When they did this they had many cattle and sheep. There was much want
of water and land for grazing that was lacking. The Canaanites did terrorize them for some
time because they were glad that they had beaten back the House of Jacob. All
Canaanites had watched the nation and wondered when they would enter the land of
Canaan and great had been their fear. Now they perceived the Hebrew Nation as weak.
They would follow them and torment them; slaughtering those at the edge of the camp;
slaughtering the weak and those at the fringes; robbing as they wished; doing unto the
House of Jacob as they wished.

So Moses lead them back towards the Sea of Reeds along the King=s highway that went
along Canaan and Egypt. As they went along the land, they asked permission from the
various nations to travel among them. Most often they were refused. So they had to go
around the lands and into the desert. This served two purposes. First, he had taught them
which people feared them and hated them. Second, it made the people stronger for they
had to care for themselves and walk over the ground where there was no road. They
picked up their cattle there by the edge of the Canaanite land. Now they were caring for
millions of sheep and cattle. Great was the labour of the people and great was the
problems with water. Because of the large number of people (for they continued to
increase in the desert), Moses chose the most popular highway to travel on, for the
strength of Egypt had been broken and the Egyptians would no longer trouble them. The
only problem that they would face would be the smaller nations along the highway who
would not wish that they travel so close to their land with such a large group of people and
so many animals.

During their travels there arose many instances of interest. One was the rebellion of one of
       - 90 -

the House of Levi, for they had decided that Aaron should not be the leader and that they
should. They decided that they should rule and govern. Great was their desire that they
should tell others what they should do; their interest was not in being a people that served
but being a people that ruled. This was most offensive to the Fathers. For the Fathers had
humbled Aaron. In humbling Aaron they had taught him most plainly that it is not through
ruling but the punishment of Levi was to serve. He that desires to rule over others would
end up being the one in service. But the people would not listen and would not cooperate
with Moses. In the end the earth opened up and they died.

As they traveled and as they did the ordinances at the tabernacle, it should be of note and
mentioned that with the re-baptism of the Children of Jacob, new prayers that were used.
A line was added to the prayer of the baptismal service, that is, Ain baptism, for the
remission of sins that their sins may be forgiven them at the time of judgement.@ These
baptisms were only performed after those parties which were being re-baptized went
before the Judges of the Sanhedrin and were deemed worthy that they had done the
restitution required by the law and offered the sacrifices required by the law, and therefore
would be deemed worthy for re-baptism.

As Moses noted the re-baptism under that covenant was not a promise of the remission of
sins. Often this has been mistaken by the Children of Jacob, assuming that they have not
the sins, or assuming sins unrepented of and no restitution done for them, or of sins
hidden, or of sins pretended not to be there, or sins undiscerned are all washed away.
This is not the case. One is baptized for the remission of sins that their sins may be
washed away and be no longer there when they stand before the Guardian of Justice.
Each of us must stand before the Guardian of Justice. They will give the final ascent to
whether our sins are forgiven us or whether we must still atone for them. Until we are at
that point in judgement there is no surety that our sins are forgiven. There is a tremendous
tendency among the children of men to look for forgiveness of sins as if the guardians of
justice can not see what we do, can not assess where our heart is, do not know us and can
not judge correctly. Such is not the case.

It was shortly after they started on the kings’ road through the lands north of Sinai that
Miriam died and was buried. The Fathers were grieved at her activities among the House
of Jacob. It was deemed that it was her time to go for she sought not to do restitution and
sought not to find favour with the Fathers so she was taken home at the command of the
Guardians of Justice, where she remains to this day in spirit prison awaiting her ordinance
for the worm.

As they passed the land of Median, Aaron was taken up on the mount. He was stripped of
all his vestments and significations of who he was were placed upon his son, and Aaron
too was taken home to live with the Fathers. The guardians of justice had made a
judgement that his heart was not changed and the sin among the House of Israel was
more than he could bear. So Aaron was taken home where in the end of days he will
receive the worm. Because of the great sinning of the House of Jacob, it was impossible
       - 91 -

for either one of them to do the restitution necessary. In the end they gave up doing
restitution and sought to continue in their ways and continued to lead the House of Jacob
astray. Aaron was ninety three when he died.

Also in the wilderness as they traveled they had an altercation with fiery serpents. Moses
held up a symbol, a symbol of the Christ, of a tree of life that was standing upon a serpent,
signifying that the Savior would grow and rise out of the earth and in the end crush the
snake. All the members of the House of Jacob had to do was look upon the tree of life
over the serpent and live. Again many of those of the House of Jacob died. Because
whether it was the serpent, or the plagues, or it was rebellion, or lack of water, each in their
time and their season, they were slow to change for they did not want to learn obedience.

As time passed on Moses and Joshua led the people to the land of the Amorite. The
Hebrew Nation went in and conquered the Amorite nation, killing all that dwelt therein.
Thus they lived in the land of the Amorites for close to ten years before continuing on their
journey. Once they settled in the land of the Amorites it was very interesting because the
first thing the people did as they settled among the Amorite land was that they began to
worship the gods that the Amorites had worshiped. Once they were settled as a people,
the camp followers found it easier and thus were more able to seduce the Hebrew men.
Among the Hebrew Nation they were able to bring in women of other nations that the
Hebrew men would marry, again leading the people astray. After they had conquered the
Amorite nation and dwelt there for a period of time, then the Kings on either side of them
looked with anticipation to see which land they would conquer next for they knew the
Amorite land was small and would not long support such a massive army, such a massive
number of people and such a large number of cattle and sheep. In that assessment they
were correct, for the camp followers had to bring in tremendous amounts of feed and food.
They were kept continuously busy that the House of Jacob would have food to eat, barley
beer to drink, food for the animals and clothes to wear. It was just before they left the land
of the Amorite to begin their conquering of other nations that Moses brought the people
together to make an assessment of their numbers, to number all the House of Israel and
their tribes. It was so as recorded.

Removed from the documents that we have this day is some interesting information. The
total number of people of the House of Jacob who had passed away in the Sinai desert
was six point seven million people. Of that number only ten percent died of natural causes;
ninety percent died of plagues, diseases and the judgements of God. Of those that died
sixty-five percent were female and thirty-five percent were male. Once he had done the
numbering of the House of Israel and at this time there were six hundred thousand odd
households still, which was the original number of households they had when they left the
land of Egypt, some thirty years prior.

After the record was finished Moses took Joshua aside ordaining him to the higher
priesthood and to be a leader of the people, to be their general and their prophet to lead
them into the promised land.
       - 92 -


They began with two nations that were near them. First, was the land of the Midianites,
which was Zipporah=s forefathers and her sons were still living. The Hebrew army went in
and killed all the adult males and all the male children and all the females over a certain
age. They then went to the land of Hershbon, killing all the people there but saved the
animals. At the end of this they moved towards the land of Canaan. They were still on the
west side of the Jordan, but they had begun recovering some of their lands. Now it was
Moses intent not to cross the river Jordan. The record clearly states that he was forbidden
to enter the land of the Canaanites. The record is incorrect. For by conquering the first
two nations they had already conquered part of the land of Israel. They were the two
nations that dwelt on the west side of the river Jordan. The whole Sinai Peninsula was
given to the Israelites to be the land of the Israelite nation, to be the land of the Hebrew
Nation, the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So Moses had already possessed some of
the land of the Hebrew inheritance. He had made arrangements for the tribes who would
inherit those lands, to inherit those lands, and subdivide them and divide them among their
people. He encouraged them to set up the framework for they would continue to battle
with the rest of the House of Jacob that the land of Israel might be recovered. It was
Moses’ decision that he wanted to go no further. His Ethiopian wife had long died and his
heart was longing to be with her. Because of her righteousness before the Fathers and
because of the wishes and promises made to Moses on Mount Sinai his Ethiopian wife, at
the age of one hundred, was taken into the City of Enoch and there she dwelled.

Moses had stayed until they had conquered the first part of the land. They had set an
example before the Hebrew Nation so that they knew how they should behave. But
because their continuous want and disregard for the law and their lack of obedience in all
things, his heart was very heavy for he could foresee what would happen to them as a
nation. For, being a prophet he saw into the future. Based on their performance in the
Sinai desert he could make relatively accurate predictions as to what would become of
them as a people if they would not make a dramatic change. He was well aware of the
time he had spent with them trying to encourage and bring about a dramatic change; all
attempts were futile. The people were proud and were not interested in change. They
were content with who they were and there was no desire on their part to become anything
different. They were at peace with themselves!

Based on walking with them these many years Moses sat down with the Elders and the
School of the Prophets and predicted that which would come upon the Hebrew Nation. He
showed them that the promises of Jehovah, the Christ, were strong and that if they were
obedient to these laws and commandments, they would become a priestly nation. If not,
he predicted that the time would come that they would taken captive into another nation.
Before being taken captive that they would be scattered with some of the House of the
Jacob, would be scattered among the other nations throughout the world. Those who were
not scattered among other nations would be taken captive into a foreign land. There they
would be forced to work and serve other gods though some would come back and restore
again part of the land of Israel, it would never be the former nation that it was, nor would
they have the glory. Nor would other nations look upon them as they wished.
       - 93 -


So they would grow as a nation in wickedness and in pride before all other nations of the
earth. They would be a mighty and stiff-necked people. Among this people in the meridian
of time Moses saw the coming of the Christ. He saw how people of the Hebrew Nation
would treat him, how the House of Judah would kill their own King! That he would go to the
garden and there like the lamb he would shed his blood for the sins of the people on the
ground. Once he had shed his blood for the sins of the people, then the people would take
him and hang him on a tree or cross and there he would die. This brought Moses much
sadness for then he saw the destruction of the rest of the Hebrew Nation. They were
scattered, tormented, tortured, abused, murdered and all matter of depredation was done
upon them. Greatly did it grieve the soul of Moses to see the people of the House of Israel
treated such. After he had seen all the destruction that would be brought upon them he
cried unto the angel and said, ASurely our God is a just God and all he has done is justice
upon those who would not follow him, who would break their covenants and not keep
them.@



He was taken forward to the time when the Children of Israel would again begin to
remember their God and seek to become a nation. They would work together to again
found a nation. They would be a nation of priests unto the most high God. It must needs
be that in forming that nation that they would bring forth those things from their past that
has been so long forgotten. For it must needs be that they would find the Ark of the
Covenant, the records of the School of the Prophets and that they will again build the
temple of Ezekiel or the temple of God in their midst, although they will not know how to
use it and it will not be a complete temple, for after their Savior and Redeemer comes then
will he give them the plans. With those plans they will build a second temple that will be
like unto the temple that I, Moses, built on Mount Sinai; that those of the House of Israel
may begin to do the work for both the living and the dead. Those who are of the House of
Israel who are of the linage of Jacob who wish to become the Children of an upright God or
Children of Israel will have the opportunity and the privilege of becoming such. But before
such days will come there will be much sadness among the House of Judah.

That we may give some understanding to the last years of Moses let us go back in time.
Regarding the wanderings in the desert after Mount Sinai and after their rejection of
recovering the land of the Canaanites, Moses= heart was troubled. He knew not what to
do with the people for he must wander with them. Their hearts were hard and they would
not listen to him. So instead he took his time and spent it among the School of the
Prophets which he had formed for his interest was to teach the people; perhaps not this
day but in days that would yet come. The School of the Prophets was those who sought to
do the will of the Fathers. So he taught them plainly. He taught them how to open to the
Fathers and how to address the Fathers, to obtain the knowledge from the Fathers that
they may understand the experiences that they had had while they were here on the earth.
 He taught them of the sciences of man; math, chemistry, plant sciences, animal
husbandry, building and war. He taught them the strategies of war and the art of sword
       - 94 -

fighting for it must needs be that they have all knowledge. As he taught these things unto
the people they recorded this knowledge that it would be available to the House of Israel.
So this knowledge was recorded.

Now Moses found that when he went to try to teach the people directly that his soul was
troubled for they would go to sleep. They would not come to learn. If the people came,
they were not interested in what he had to say. So Moses found if he sent those of the
School of the Prophets to teach the Teachers of the people, that that was the most
effective. For the Teachers of the people would flatter them and encourage them along.
So Moses taught the brethren at the School of the Prophets, the Elders there, both the
husbands and the wives. The knowledge was transferred from there and taken to the
Teachers who in years to come would become the school of the Rabbis. It was the
responsibility of the Rabbis to teach the people. Over the years and generations of time
the Rabbis formed their own school for they did not always appreciate the attitudes of the
teachings and the direction of the Teachers of the School of the Prophets. It is of interest
to note that out of the school of the Rabbis, until they were taken captive into Babylon, no
prophet of the Fathers ever arose from the school of the Rabbis, but all of the prophets
arose from the School of the Prophets.

Now those of the School of the Prophets were taught both the Hebrew language and the
language of the Egyptians. The purpose of teaching the language of the Egyptians was
that they would be able to write in the language of the Hebrews and the language of the
Egyptians. Because the Hebrew Nation spoke Hebrew it was not at that time the language
of commerce, but the reformed Egyptian was. It was the desire of Moses that those of the
School of the Prophets and those who were called to scribes would be able to translate
their work into the reformed Egyptian, that all the nations of the earth that surrounded the
Hebrew Nation would be able to receive their record and read it if they wished. Not that
they would have to but that it would be in a language that all people could understand. For
the scribes, if they wrote only in the Hebrew language, only the Hebrew people would be
able to read it. Because of the lack of commerce and their more sedimentary lifestyle in
farming in raising of sheep and except for taking back the land of the Canaanites, the land
that had been given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, they had no desire toward other nations
or to take captivate other nations at this time. Then it was deemed essential that important
scriptures would be written in both languages, that all nations on the earth would have the
availability through the Egyptian language and thus this information was recorded.

Among the School of the Prophets besides learning the reformed Egyptian and the Hebrew
language over the period of years as they traveled in the wilderness, Moses had taught
them certain phrases in the Adamic language. He did not teach them the fullness of the
Adamic language but he taught them enough of the Adamic language that they could do
and carry out the commands of the Fathers. There is record among the School of the
Prophets of many of the Prophets learning the Adamic language and using that language.
Most of those records are not in circulation at this time.
       - 95 -

Now regarding the schooling of the Hebrew Nation; for it is interesting if you watch the
Hebrew Nation by observing their lack of education, their desired lack to learn, their lack of
reading the scriptures, their lack of desire to learn the scriptures, that one is allowed to see
and perceive that if the Children of an upright God do not take the time to study the
scriptures and to learn the law, to know the law, to ponder the law and set things in
perspective, then it is not very long before the children wander in disbelief and chase other
gods because they can not read their own history and they do not know their history. Such
was the circumstances among the Children of Jacob. Although there were Teachers for
each group of fifty, the Teachers reported that most of the students did not show up.

They also reported that, because no child showed up before the age of eight or nine, and
by the age of twelve most children no longer came because there were more important
things to do, and there were more things of interest to do, thus Moses began to raise the
most ignorant people. Although he tried to teach them that man can not be saved in
ignorance, let alone be exalted, the Hebrew Nation was content not to know. For the
feeling was among the people was that if they did not know the law, then surely God could
not hold them responsible for the law, they did not know the law and they could not
understand the law. They had found ways to reason around all the laws they had been
given. For surely God would reason with them, for he was a reasonable God.

Now regarding Moses’ last days. As he approached the age of one hundred and ten
Moses stood among the people and spoke plainly to Joshua and the School of the
Prophets. Moses said AI am old. I have walked a long way. I desire no more to walk at
the head of these people for I have seen what will be involved in the land of the Canaanites
and it grieves my soul. I have called unto the Fathers and reminded them of a promise that
they gave me on Sinai so long ago that at the end of my days here on this earth, that like
my Ethiopian wife, I too would be taken to the City of Enoch where I could continue to
minister and teach people who wish to listen and learn. Besides as I stand here at the
head of the House of Jacob there is hardly a family among the Children of Jacob who has
not lost family and loved ones and they blame me.”

“They hate me. For they feel it is I that have killed their family members, for they do not
feel that their family members have committed sin. So this whole house has turned against
me. Great is their anger towards me. Thus I have put in a call unto the Fathers and he will
be here on the morrow. I will climb the mountain over there and he will come and get me.
I will go to the City of Enoch that I may continue to minister among those people on the
earths that are righteous. For great shall be my joy to be able to teach people who wish to
learn. For long have I struggled among this people and yet they wish not to learn. I have
tried to teach them obedience and they do not want to obey. I have tried to teach them to
love their God; all they love is themselves and their friends. I have tried to make them a
nation of priests unto the nations of the earth; all they wish to do is hold feasts. I wish to
conquer Satan that he will be bound and would have no place among us as a people, yet
most tents draw him in; by their actions and deeds they invite him that he would come and
reside in their tents that he would be with them. I have separated myself with the School of
the Prophets that all these may stand as a testimony towards the House of Jacob that they
       - 96 -

would know they had the opportunity to become the House of Israel. Throughout the
generations of time they will pretend they are the Children of Israel. But they are just
Jacob=s Children, children of men. So I say goodbye to this people and this nation. Until
such time that we should stand before the Guardians of Justice and account for all that we
have done then you will know that my words are sure, that my promises was correct and
my understanding was plain and you will feel the swiftness of a just God. For the laws
require that all things be done in a just manner. God is not a respecter of nations or people.
Being the children of Abraham will not make up for disobedience or rebellion. So with a
long heart I bid you adieu. On the morrow as you look upon the mountain you should see
the fiery light descend then you should see it ascend again into the sky. Then you will
know that I am gone. Search not for me for I will be gone. A
AGoodbye.@
