Mighty And Strong Words


kalki-white-horseKALKI COMES ON A WHITE HORSE (From Hindu scripture) “In all nations, wealth and spirituality will decrease day by day until the entire world will be corrupt, crooked and depraved. Then property alone will confer rank or high reputation; money will be the only object of devotion and dedication in people; the vicissitudes of physical sexual desire will be the only and fleeting bond of union between the sexes; women will be regarded as nothing but objects of sexual gratification; and falsehood will be the only means of success in litigation.”

“The natural Earth will be venerated only for its’ mineral treasures; nothing but the Brahmanical thread in India will be said to make a person a Brahman; external clothing will be the only distinction of the level of evolution of human beings; dishonesty instead of genuine productive work will become the short-lived means of subsistence for people everywhere; weakness and irresponsibility will cause more and more people to depend on charity and the state wherever they can; political menace, conformity and intellectual presumption will be substituted for education; immorality and personal corruption will be the new false religion; mere external bathing and showering will be the substitute for internal purification; easily breakable mutual assent will be the only marriage vow of parents for rearing children and divorce with broken homes will ever increase; fine clothes and bodily physique will be the only human dignity; and only water in far-away holy places will be sacred, for the local water will be increasingly polluted.”

“When the spiritual traditions of the past are no longer practiced and the institutions of law and justice have become falsified and dysfunctional, the final closure of the Kali Yuga shall be imminent. At that time, a Self of the Divine Being who exists in His own innate spiritual nature in oneness with Brahman, and who shall be both the beginning and the end of all spiritual ways, and who comprehends all the spiritual ways and philosophies and sciences, shall descend upon the Earth. He will be a true Brahman (by inner nature) from Shambhala. He will be known as Kalki, chalky (Caucasian), endowed with all eight superhuman faculties, siddhis. By an irresistible Cosmic Force he will destroy the Barbarian rulers and leaders who are nothing but conniving thieves whose minds are devoted to evil. He, Kalki, will then re-establish righteous harmony upon the Earth; and the minds of those who survive the end of the Kali Age shall be awakened into higher unprejudiced awareness and be clear as crystal. Those men and women of that peculiar time of transition shall be as seeds of the emergent human race that shall ascend and evolve through the Dwapara and Treta Ages into a new Krita Golden Age.”  Vishnu Purana

“Vishnu will return as Kalki, upon a white horse, as the last Avatar, amid fire and flames.” Hindu Puranas

“He will then reestablish righteousness upon Earth; and the minds of those who live at the end of the Kali age shall be awakened, and shall be as translucent as crystal.” Vishnu Purana IV:24,26-27

THE MIGHTY MAITREYA (From Buddhist Scripture)

In the evil age to come, living beings will decrease in good qualities and increase in utter ignorance, coveting gain and honors, developing their evil qualities, and being far removed from deliverance.’ – Lotus Sutra 13

‘Before the coming of the Maitreya, the holy religion will decline. How will it occur? After my decease, first will occur the five disappearances. And what are the five disappearances? The disappearance of attainments, the disappearance of the method, the disappearance of learning, the disappearance of symbols, the disappearance of the relics. These are the five disappearances that are to occur.’ – Buddhism. Anagatavamsa

‘The banner of Shambala shall encircle the central lands of the Blessed One. Those who accept him shall rejoice, and those who deny him shall tremble. The decriers shall be given over to justice and shall be forgotten. The warriors shall march under the banner of Maitreya.’ – The prophecy of Shambala (Buddhist, BEF 700 CE)

‘People will no longer have any religion to which they can turn for solace or liberation: the doctrines of materialism will overwhelm their minds and drive them to struggle for their own selfish ends. The lust for power and wealth will prevail over teachings of compassion and truth’ – The prophecy of Shambala (Buddhist, BEF 700 CE)

‘In those days, brethren, there will arise in the World and Exalted One named Maitreya. He will be an Arahant, Fully Awakened, abounding in wisdom and goodness, happy, with knowledge of the worlds, unsurpassed as a guide to mortals willing to be led, a teacher of gods and men, an Exalted One, a Buddha, even as I am now. He, by himself , will thoroughly know and see, as it were face to face, this Universe, with its worlds of the spirits, its Brahmas and its Maras, and its world of recluses and Brahmins, of princes and peoples, even as I now, by myself thoroughly know and see them. The Law, lovely in its origin, lovely in its progress, lovely in its consummation, will he proclaim, both in the spirit and in the letter; the higher life will he make known, in all its fullness and in all its purity, even as I do now. He will be accompanied by a congregation of some thousands of brethren, even as I am now accompanied by a congregation of some hundreds of brethren.’ – Digha Nikaya iii.76, Cakkavatti-Sihanada Sutanta

‘Listen attentively with one heart. A man whose spirit shines brightly, a man whose mind is completely unified, a man whose virtue excels everyone – such a man will truly appear in this world. When he preaches precious laws, all the people will be totally satisfied as if the thirsty drink sweet drops of rain from heaven. And each and every one will attain the path of liberation from struggles.’ – Sutra of the Great Accomplishment of the Maitreya

HOPE FROM THE HOPI TRIBE (Hopi Prophecy)

WhiteFeather“I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and learning from them many things full of wisdom. I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, and the places of holy altars of stone built many years ago by my brothers’ fathers in the south. From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories, and few are left — the past grows longer, and the future grows shorter.

“And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people have tired of the old ways — the great ceremonies that tell of our origins, of our emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all abandoned, forgotten, yet even this has been foretold. The time grows short.

“My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. We were told of their coming long ago, but still we await Pahana. He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

“The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left. This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder. This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes — the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.” “This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes — the coming of the white men’s cattle.” “This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.” “This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed by a giant spider’s web.” “This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be crisscrossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.” This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it. This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom. And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.

“These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands — with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon — very soon afterward — Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World. But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You — perhaps will see it. In time, in time…”

THE WORDS OF JESUS IN THE MENTINAH

  1. Wherefore, write this prophecy in a book and preserve it. And in the day of great tribulation, when even my own appointed prophets shall sit in confusion, I shall cause my words to come forth from the dust. Yea, out of the earth shall my words hiss, and though they make every attempt to cover them up again, yet shall my words be made known and their folly shall be uncovered. Behold, they who do still see with the eyes of the spirit shall read these records, and of this prophecy most especially, and they shall beseech me again, seeking my face. And when they do this, I shall show myself unto them with great power. Then shall the restoration proceed again unhindered by pride.

  2. And I shall call again that Apostle whom I loved from old, and he shall come forth again and make a regulation of my Church. And behold, there are three of my apostles whom I have called from among the people of the Land Bountiful unto whom I have given power over death. They also shall I call up and send unto the righteous remnant from within my house. And these, being directed by my beloved Apostle, shall make a great regulation and shall put in order my Holy House. And behold, all who read this record, as well the other works that I shall cause to be written and hid up in the earth until a certain time, shall see clearly how that by my spirit I did direct the people of this day in their sacred walk and their sacred talk. Yea, and they who read these things shall see that John and his fellow servants shall order my house in the way in which I have instructed you by my spirit.

  3. Then shall the saints once again approach me without persecution. Then the very elect shall no longer be deceived. Then shall my prophets sit no longer in stupor or in idleness of thought. But their building and their teaching shall once again be for the profit of both living and dead. Then shall my people turn again from their pride and their riches and embrace their God.

  4. And this shall be a sign unto you, Oh house of Israel – in the day when the holy incense is taken away from the ordinances of my Holy House, yea, and in the day when the dead sacrifice shall have been restored but shall have taken precedence over the living, yea, in the day when those whom I shall call to stretch forth the hand to steady the ark shall teach my children to follow their words and their doctrine, and not to seek the Spirit in all things, yea, in the day when the place of my daughters shall have been reduced to a place of compulsion and servitude unto the men, then shall the time be ripe for the fulfillment of my words. Yea, then shall I call forth my servants to do my will and regulate my Church. Then shall all things be brought again in order and my saints shall begin again to bring about Zion in this fair land.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I have heard a lot of opinions on the “one mighty and strong.” One is that Jesus Christ is the one mighty and strong, who will come in a resurrected state, and another is that he will come again as a mortal. Some have said it is John the revelator in a translated state, others have said it is John the revelator in a mortal state. I have heard it that it will be Moses reincarnated, or Joseph Smith returning. Some say that all of us who assist are the “one mighty and strong.”

I would like to hear your opinions. Is this person alive? Is it someone who is new on the scene or have they already lived on the earth? When he comes will it be wrong if people call him Maitreya or Kalki or Pahana? Will anyone who has received the name of Christ also receive the title of one who is “mighty” and “strong?” Does it matter?

In section 85 (as well as many other places in different words) we are told that the house will be set in order by this person. Will it be out of order until then? What are we to do in the mean time? I obviously have my own understanding of all of this but would love to hear other opinions and I am sure I could learn from what others have gleaned by the Spirit themselves. To honor Martin Luther King, (who I believe was a man of God) I will end with a few of my favorite quotes from him;

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige, and even his life for the welfare of others. In dangerous valleys and hazardous pathways, he will lift some bruised and beaten brother to a higher and more noble life.”

“Courage faces fear and thereby masters it. Cowardice represses fear and is thereby mastered by it. Courageous men never lose the zest for living even though their life situation is zestless; cowardly men, overwhelmed by the uncertainties of life, lose the will to live. We must constantly build dykes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”

“Many people fear nothing more terribly than to take a position which stands out sharply and clearly from the prevailing opinion. The tendency of most is to adopt a view that is so ambiguous that it will include everything and so popular that it will include everybody. Not a few men who cherish lofty and noble ideals hide them under a bushel for fear of being called different.”

  1. That was an awesome compilation from various traditions! The Mentinah makes it sound like the servants to set in order thr Lord’s House will be John the Beloved and the Three Nephites, or am I mistaken?

  2. Jesef,

    I am with you. I think the Mentinah implies it will be those 4. I believe it will be those four who are actually 1! They are all of one heart and 1 mind. I believe that the scriputes reffer to them as one becasue they are all of one purpose. I think a lot of prophecy could be misinterpreted because one Scripture could be talking about one of these four as if they are one but who am I? That is just my opinion and belief.

    Nate,

    I was very edified by this. I don’t care if its Kalki, Maitreya, Jesus, Pahan, Joseph smith, the 3 Nephites, John the beloved or Barney the purple dinasour that comes to saves things and set the house back in order. All I know is that all of those signs seem to be fullfilled and we are in need of a true restoration. This world is in complete chaos. I am afraid to ask this but how much worse can things get before they are beyond any sort of repair and God says, just kidding, time to whipe the entire race off the earth and start over again.

  3. Yes I think the mentinah definitely alludes to the idea of John the revelator and the three Nephites.
    I put all of these together because 1. I have felt the spirit reading each of these at various times 2. There are striking similarities in these prophecies to the standard works in the LDS church.
    I could have listed the more familiar messiah ben joseph and messiah ben David texts from jewish tradition as well, or various others.

    In Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Islam, Judaism, as well as Native American lore from different tribes and other various religious movements they speak of the ending of an age with destruction, a deliverer coming to teach the truth and gather to a promised land, building up waste places and ushering in a new age with peace and unity the world has not known. I believe strongly that God will unite people of all faiths. All will have to let go of idolatry and falsehood and grasp new truth.
    I feel to learn from the worship of various belief systems. Why not look into other rituals and seek to understand why other cultures feel so strongly about their worship? I believe there is a lot of truth in the teachings of st Issa where Issa (Jesus) spoke to the Hindus in their language and told then to worship Brahman instead of the lower gods and he told the Zoroastrians (Persians) to stop worshipping the creations (the sun and earth etc) and worship the creator. He spoke their language. I believe God uses various words and symbols to speak to our understanding and if people call Jesus by the name of Vishnu I do not think He would correct them.
    We forget that His name was most likely pronounced Yeshua and yet He has never corrected me in my prayers…
    Thanks Sfort for supplying the scripture from the mentinah I couldn’t supply the exact reference…

  4. What does this one mean? “And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star.” And have the ceremonies of the Hopi ceased?

    What does verse 14 of the Mentinah mean? Are the dead sacrifices proxy work for the dead? Regulate the church? Does that mean that the LDS Church will actually be cleansed? Are those prophets the LDS leaders?

    Like

  5. I am not positive on the 9th sign but to me it sounds like either a return of the city of Enoch or the lost tribes (if some theories are correct) sounds a lot like something from revelations though.
    As far as the mentinah goes I think it is references work for the dead for sure and then speaks of setting things in order. Perhaps not necessarily by destruction but it alludes to a cleansing for sure.

  6. Pardon my ignorance, but do people really take Mentinah seriously?

    Like

    • About as seriously as the creators of southpark take the Book of Mormon. The story of the coming forth of the mentinah actually is way less fishy (logically speaking) than the Book of Mormon. I find most people won’t read it because they are scared.
      Whatever the source of the mentinah is when it comes right down to it whoever wrote it has a lot of understanding and knowledge and believes they are writing scripture. Definitely worth reading. I don’t trust anything simply because it is in any book but whatever truth I find I don’t mind quoting at all. I personally don’t know why anyone takes the doctrine and covenants seriously but hey, I have felt the spirit many times reading that error filled book as well.
