The Enemy In the Secret Chambers Is Satan

Prepared by  Elder Dwight Burford  September 11, 2006 Updated  

Revealed by Almighty God through Joseph Smith Jr. as found in those scriptures in the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and the Inspired Version of the Bible and no where else scripture wise. We are talking about “Freemasonry” being exposed by Almighty God in the below scriptures.

And ye also shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled;  for all I have told you must come to pass. But the end is not yet. Behold, I have  told you before, Wherefore, if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert;  go not forth. Behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the light  of the morning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, and cover 

eth the whole earth; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. (Matthew  24:25-27; cf. John 18:20 & Luke 12:1-3)  

And again I say unto you, that the enemy in the secret chambers seeketh your  lives. Ye hear of wars in far countries, and ye say that there will soon be great  wars in far countries, but ye know not the hearts of men in your own land. I tell  you these things because of your prayers; wherefore, treasure up wisdom in  your bosoms, lest the wickedness of men reveal these things unto you, by their  wickedness, in a manner that shall speak in your ears, with a voice louder than  that which shall shake the earth: but if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear. (D&C  38:6b-d; cf. D&C 63:9a-c)  

The Enemy, Even Satan 

The Lord warned His newly founded church  in these latter days that the enemy in the secret  chambers was seeking their lives.1 Who was  this enemy? In an inspired exposition of the  parable of the wheat and the tares2 the Lord  identified the enemy as Satan, the one who sits  in the hearts of the nations and the great perse cutor of the church, the apostate, the whore,  even Babylon.3 

Verily thus saith the Lord unto you, my ser vants, concerning the parable of the wheat  and the tares: Behold, verily I say that the

2 (Matthew 13:22-29)  

3 (cf. I Nephi 7:26-64 & II Nephi 7:22-33 & 12:22-33)  

field was the world, and the apostles were the  sowers of the seed; and after they have fallen  asleep, the great persecutor of the church, the  

apostate, the whore, even Babylon, that  maketh all nations to drink of her cup, in  whose hearts the enemy, even Satan, sitteth to  reign; behold, he soweth the tares, wherefore  the tares choke the wheat and drive the church  into the wilderness. (D&C 84:1)  

In an epistle to the first century church, the  apostle Peter described how Satan, our adver sary the devil, goes about like a roaring lion  seeking whom he may devour.4 Peter had ex perienced the devastating bitterness of his en emy’s cunning first hand.5 The night of Jesus’  betrayal, our Lord warned Peter that Satan was    

4 (I Peter 5:8)  

5 (cf. D&C 22:13) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 1 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

seeking his life to sift the children of the king dom as wheat.6 Peter had affirmed a valiant al legiance to Jesus, even unto death if need be,  but as Jesus prophesied, Peter rudely denied his  Lord and friend three times within a short span  that evening; and Peter went out and wept bit terly.7 Now, however, as admonished by the  Lord, the converted Peter sought to strengthen  his brethren by encouraging them to be sober  and vigilant in their faith so they might not be come prey to the enemy of their souls.8 

Jesus Christ gave the peoples of this land the  same warning that He had given to Peter (which  Peter in turn had given to his brethren of the  church).9  

…Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, ye  must watch and pray always, lest ye enter into  temptation; for satan desireth to have you,  that he may sift you as wheat; Therefore, ye  must always pray unto the Father in My  name… (III Nephi 8:50,51)  

Like those before them, Satan desired to have  the more righteous among the Nephites and  Lamanites to sift them as wheat.10 Now,  through latter day revelation, Jesus Christ deliv ered the same message to His restored church,  warning her members that the enemy in secret  chambers was seeking their lives – warning  them that Satan their enemy desired to have  them even as he sought Peter and the peoples of  old on this land.  

Tragically, the early restored church did not  heed the Lord’s counsel of warning.11 As re lated in a parable, the early church allowed the  enemy to break into the vineyard of the Lord  and destroy and tear down the work He had  commanded them to complete.  

6 (Luke 22:31,32 IR)  

7 (Luke 22:31-34 & 60-62)  

8 (cf. II Peter 5:8 with Luke 22:32)  

9 (cf. I Peter 1:10-16 & D&C 85:22,23)  

10 (cf. III Nephi 4:66)  

11 (D&C 102:1-3)  

And now, I will show unto you a parable  that you may know my will concerning the re demption of Zion. A certain nobleman had a  

spot of land, very choice; and he said unto his  servants, Go ye into my vineyard, even upon  this very choice piece of land, and plant  twelve olive trees; and set watchmen round  about them and build a tower, that one may  overlook the land round about, to be a watch man upon the tower; that mine olive trees may  not be broken down, when the enemy shall  come to spoil and take unto themselves the  fruit of my vineyard.  

Now the servants of the nobleman went and  did as their lord commanded them; and  planted the olive trees, and built a hedge  round about, and set watchmen, and began to  build the tower.  

And while they were yet laying the founda tion thereof, they began to say among them selves, And what need hath my lord of this  tower? and consulted for a long time, saying  among themselves, What need hath my lord of  this tower, seeing this is a time of peace?  Might not this money be given to the exchang ers? for there is no need of these things!  

And while they were at variance one with  another they became very slothful, and they  hearkened not unto the commandments of  their lord, and the enemy came by night and  broke down the hedge, and the servants of the  nobleman arose, and were affrighted, and  fled; and the enemy destroyed their works  and broke the olive trees down. (D&C 98:6)  

Had they obeyed the following commandment,  to give diligent heed to the words of eternal  life,12 this disastrous result would not have hap pened.  

And now I give unto you a commandment to  beware concerning yourselves, to give diligent  heed to the words of eternal life; for you shall  live by every word that proceedeth forth from  

12 (cf. Genesis 6:62 with Helaman 2:44) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 2 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

the mouth of God.  

For the word of the Lord is truth, and what soever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light  is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ; and  the Spirit giveth light to every man that  cometh into the world; and the Spirit enlight eneth every man through the world, that  hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit; and eve ryone that hearkeneth to the voice of the  Spirit, cometh unto God, even the Father; and  the Father teacheth him of the covenant which  he has renewed and confirmed upon you,  which is confirmed upon you for your sakes,  and not for your sakes only, but for the sake of  the whole world:  

and the whole world lieth in sin, and  groaneth under darkness and under the bond age of sin: and by this you may know they are  under the bondage of sin, because they come  not unto me; for whoso cometh not unto me is  under the bondage of sin; and whoso receiveth  not my voice is not acquainted with my voice,  and is not of me; and by this you may know  the righteous from the wicked, and that the  whole world groaneth under sin and darkness  even now. (D&C 83:7)  

Why the command to beware concerning your selves, to give diligent heed to the words of eter nal life? In the beginning, Satan volunteered to  

be the Savior of the world.13 His plan was to get  power and glory for himself by taking away the  agency (stewardship) of mankind.14 Therefore,  the Lord cast Satan down by the power of His  Only Begotten Son, who is full of grace and  truth.15 Now, in his fallen state, Satan goes  about seeking whom he may devour, namely  those who will not hearken unto the voice of the  Lord.16 

Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled  against me, and sought to destroy the agency    

13 (Genesis 3:1,2 Inspired Revision or IR)  

14 (vs. 4)  

15 (vs. 3,4)  

16 (cf. Daniel 9)  

of man, which I, the Lord God, had given him;  and also that I should give unto him mine own  power; by the power of mine Only Begotten I  caused that he should be cast down; and he  became Satan. Yea, even the devil, the father  of all lies, to deceive, and to blind men, and to  lead them captive at his will, even as many as  would not hearken unto my voice. (Genesis  3:4,5 IR)  

Lest we fall prey to the enemy of our souls,  we too must give diligent heed to our Lord’s  words, especially those brought forth in these  latter days through the Book of Mormon.17  Why the Book of Mormon? This plain and pre cious record contains a detailed account of how  Satan destroyed the peoples of this land, includ ing a righteous branch of the Lord’s covenant  peoples, because they failed to heed His counsel  and commandments.18 In particular, it describes  how their enemy, the devil, worked through se cret combinations or societies to tempt men to  seek power and wealth, even as he had in the  beginning, instead of seeking the welfare of  Zion.19 Here are some of the key lessons found  in the Book of Mormon on the treachery of how  the enemy in the secret chambers works among  those who do not give diligent heed to the  Lord’s word, and thereby takes them captive at  his will.20  

The Enemy in Secret Chambers 

1. The main secret society found in the Book  of Mormon among the Nephites and Lamanites  was called the secret society of Gaddianton.  Some who belonged to it affirmed that they  knew it to be good, even though it proved to be  so destructive to the people of Nephi.21 

17 (cf. II Nephi 13:30 & 14:4,11,12 with D&C 83:8)  18 (cf. II Nephi 1:34 & 3:8,9)  

19 (cf. II Nephi 11:106-124 with Genesis 5:6-43 IR)  20 (cf. II Timothy 2:24-26)  

21 (e.g. III Nephi 1:48-57 & IV Nephi 1:50-54 with He laman 1:51,52, 4:33,34 & Mormon 1:19,20) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 3 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

And behold, I am Giddianhi and am the gov ernor of this, the secret society of Gaddian ton, which society and the works thereof I  know to be good; and they are of ancient date  and they have been handed down unto us.  (III Nephi 2:11)  

And behold, in the end of this book ye shall  see that this Gaddianton did prove the over throw, yea, almost the entire destruction of the  people of Nephi. Behold, I do not mean the  end of the book of Helaman, but I mean the  end of the book of Nephi from which I have  taken all the account which I have written.  (Helaman 1:51,52)  

2. These secret societies were often referred to  as secret bands or secret combinations.  

And it came to pass in the forty and ninth  year of the reign of the judges, there was con tinual peace established in the land, all save it  were the secret combinations which Gaddi anton the robber had established in the more  settled parts of the the land, which at that time  were not known unto those which were at the  head of the government; Therefore, they were  not destroyed out of the land. (Helaman 2:21)  

And now it had come to pass that there were  many, even among the Nephites, of Gaddian ton’s band; But behold, they were more nu merous among the more wicked part of the  Lamanites. (Helaman 2:142)  

Yea, wo be unto you because of that great  abomination which has come among you!  And ye have united yourselves unto it, yea, to  that secret band which was established by  Gaddianton. (Helaman 3:28)  

And it came to pass that the wicked part of  the people began again to build up the secret  oaths and combinations of Gaddianton; And  also the people which were called the people  of Nephi began to be proud in their hearts be 

cause of their exceeding riches and became  vain like unto their brethren, the Lamanites.  (IV Nephi 1:50,51)  

3. The devil is the author of all such secret  combinations or societies.22 

O the wisdom of God, His mercy and grace!  For behold, if the flesh should rise no more,  our spirits must become subject to that angel  which fell from before the presence of the  Eternal God and became the devil, to rise no  more; And our spirits must have become like  unto him, and we become devils, angels to a  devil, to be shut out from the presence of our  God and to remain with the father of lies, in  misery like unto himself; Yea, to that being  who beguiled our first parents, who transfor meth himself nigh unto an angel of light and  stirreth up the children of men unto secret  combinations of murder and all manner of  secret works of darkness. (II Nephi 6:19-23)  

And there are also secret combinations,  even as in times of old, according to the com binations of the devil; for he is the founder of  all these things, yea, the founder of murder,  and works of darkness, Yea, and he leadeth  them by the neck with a flaxen cord, until he  bindeth them with his strong cords forever.  For, behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto  you that the Lord God worketh not in dark ness. (II Nephi 11:93-95)  

Yea, it is that same being who put it into the  heart of Gaddianton to still carry on the work  of darkness, and of secret murder; And he  hath brought it forth from the beginning of  man, even down to this time; And behold, it is  he who is the author of all sin. And behold, he  doth carry on his works of darkness and secret  murder, and doth hand down their plots and  their oaths and their covenants and their plans  of awful wickedness from generation to gen- 

22 (Helaman 2:150-156 with Genesis 5:37 IR) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 4 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

eration, according as he can get hold upon the  hearts of the children of men. (Helaman  2:155,156)  

And behold, they both belong to your secret  band, whose author is Gaddianton and the  evil one which seeketh to destroy the souls of  men. (Helaman 3:66)  

4. The Lord does not work in any secret socie ties or combinations, for they are abominable to  Him.23 As Jesus Christ warned, if anyone tells  you He is in the secret chambers, believe it not  because it is a lie from the father of all lies.24 

Come ye near unto me; I have not spoken in  secret from the beginning; from the time that  it was declared have I spoken. And the Lord  God and his Spirit hath sent me. (I Nephi  6:23)  

And it came to pass that they formed a se cret combination, even as they of old which  combination is most abominable and wicked  above all in the sight of God; For the Lord  worketh not in secret combinations, neither  doth He will that man should shed blood, but  in all things hath forbidden it, from the begin ning of man. (Ether 3:92,93)  

For behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto  you that the Lord God worketh not in dark ness…And He doeth nothing save it be plain  unto the children of men… (II Nephi  11:95,112)  

5. The secret societies or combinations in the  Book of Mormon times were from ancient ori gin, from the time of Cain, and they are per petuated throughout the generations by the  devil, that same being who did entice our first  parents to partake of the forbidden fruit and    

23 (cf. I John 3:8 & I Nephi 6:23 with II Nephi 7:22-26 &  12:96-99) 

24 (cf. Matthew 24:26 with John 8:44 & Genesis  5:38,43 IR)  

who plotted with Cain to murder his brother  Abel to get gain secretly.25 

Now behold, those secret oaths and cove nants did not come forth unto Gaddianton  from the records which were delivered unto  Helaman; But behold, they were put into the  heart of Gaddianton by that same being who  did entice our first parents to partake of the  forbidden fruit; yea, the same being who did  plot with Cain, that if he would murder his  brother Abel, it should not be known unto the  world; And he did plot with Cain and his fol lowers, from that time forth.  

And also it is that same being who put it into  the hearts of the people, to build a tower suffi ciently high that they might get to heaven.  And it was that same being who led on the  people which came from that tower into this  land, which spread the works of darkness and  abominations over all the face of the land un til he dragged the people down to an entire  destruction and to an everlasting hell,  

 Yea, it is that same being who put it into the  heart of Gaddianton to still carry on the work  of darkness and of secret murder; And he has  brought it forth from the beginning of man,  even down to this time.  

And behold, it is he which is the author of  all sin; And behold, he doth carry on his  works of darkness and secret murder, and  doth hand down their plots and their oaths  and their covenants and their plans of awful  wickedness from generation to generation,  according as he can get hold upon the hearts  of the children of men. (Helaman 2:150-156)  

And Akish did administer unto them the  oaths which were given by them of old who  also sought power, which had been handed  down, even from Cain who was a murderer  

from the beginning; And they were kept up by  the power of the devil to administer these  

25 (cf. Genesis 5:6-23 IR with Ether 3:47,114 &  III Nephi 2:11) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 5 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

oaths unto the people to keep them in dark ness, to help such as sought power to gain  power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to  lie, and to commit all manner of wickedness  and whoredoms. (Ether 3:89,90)  

6. The members of the secret society of Gaddi anton had their secret signs and words to distin guish them from those not of their craft.  

And it came to pass that they did have their  signs, yea, their secret signs and their secret  words; and this that they might distinguish a  brother who had entered into the covenant,  that whatsoever wickedness his brother should  do, he should not be injured by his brother,  nor by those who did belong to his band who  had taken this covenant. (Helaman 2:146)  

And now my son, I command you that ye re tain all their oaths and their covenants and  their agreements in their secret abominations;  yea, and all their signs and their wonders ye  shall retain from this people, that they know  them not, lest peradventure they should fall  into darkness also and be destroyed; For be hold, there is a curse upon all this land that  destruction shall come upon all those workers  of darkness, according to the power of God,  when they are fully ripe. Therefore, I desire  that this people might not be destroyed;  Therefore, ye shall keep these secret plans of  their oaths and their covenants from this peo ple, and only their wickedness and their mur ders and their abominations shall ye make  known unto them. (Alma 17:59-61)  

7. Those who revealed the secrets of their se cret societies or combinations were to be judged  by the laws and covenants of the society or  combination, not according to the just laws of  the land.26 

And whosoever of those which belonged to  

26 (cf. Genesis 5:36,37 with Ether 3:88,89)  

their band should reveal unto the world of  their wickedness and their abominations,  should be tried, not according to the laws of  their country, but according to the laws of  their wickedness which had been given by  Gaddianton and Kishkumen. (Helaman 2:148)  

8. It is not wisdom in God for the secret oaths,  covenants, agreements, signs, plans, etc., of  their craft to be revealed. Doing so greatly as sist the devil in tempting people to build up his  secret works of darkness among them and,  thereby, bring a curse upon their land.27 

And now my son, I command you that ye re tain all their oaths and their covenants and  their agreements in their secret abominations;  yea, and all their signs and their wonders ye  shall retain from this people, that they know  them not, lest peradventure they should fall  into darkness also, and be destroyed; For be hold, there is a curse upon all this land that  destruction shall come upon all those workers  of darkness, according to the power of God,  when they are fully ripe.  

Therefore I desire that this people might not  be destroyed; Therefore, ye shall keep these  secret plans of their oaths and their covenants  from this people, and only their wickedness  and their murders and their abominations  shall ye make known unto them; And ye shall  teach them to abhor such wickedness and  abominations and murders, and ye shall also  teach them that these people were destroyed  on account of their wickedness and abomina tions and their murders; For behold, they  murdered all the prophets of the Lord who  came among them to declare unto them con cerning their iniquities; and the blood of those  whom they murdered did cry unto the Lord  their God for vengeance upon those who were  their murderers.  

And thus the judgments of God did come  upon these workers of darkness and secret  

27 (cf. Ether 3:80,81 with Helaman 1:38-49) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 6 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

combinations; yea, and cursed be the land  forever and ever unto those workers of dark ness and secret combinations, even unto de struction, except they repent before they are  fully ripe.  

And now my son, remember the words which  I have spoken unto you; Ttrust not those secret  plans unto this people, but teach them an ever lasting hatred against sin and iniquity; Preach  unto them repentance and faith on the Lord  Jesus Christ; Teach them to humble them selves, and to be meek and lowly in heart;  Teach them to withstand every temptation of  the devil with their faith on the Lord Jesus  Christ; Teach them to never be weary of good  works, but to be meek and lowly in heart; for  such shall find rest to their souls. (Alma  17:59-67)  

9. These secret combinations are built up to get  glory, i.e. power and gain, and moreover that  they might commit adultery,28 steal, kill, and do  according to their own wills.  

… it was the object of all those which be longed to his band to murder and to rob and  to gain power, and this was their secret plan  and their combination… (Helaman 1:44)  

And thus they might murder and plunder  and steal and commit whoredoms and all  manner of wickedness contrary to the laws of  their country, and also the laws of their God.  (Helaman 2:147)  

Behold, now it came to pass in the sixty and  ninth year of the reign of the judges over the  people of the Nephites that Nephi, the son of  Helaman, returned to the land of Zarahemla  …and did preach the word of God unto them,  and did prophesy many things unto them; And  they did reject all his words insomuch that he  could not stay among them, but returned  again unto the land of his nativity.  

28 (cf. D&C 111:4b with D&C 42:7d,e & 63:5)  

 And seeing the people in a state of such aw ful wickedness and those Gaddianton robbers  filling the judgment seats, having usurped the  power and authority of the land, laying aside  

the commandments of God and not in the least  aright before Him, doing no justice unto the  children of men, condemning the righteous  because of their righteousness, letting the  guilty and the wicked go unpunished because  of their money;  

And moreover, to be held in office at the  head of government to rule and to do accord ing to their wills, that they might get gain and  glory of the world; and moreover, that they  might the more easy commit adultery and steal  and kill and do according to their own wills.  (Helaman 3:1-4)  

Hath he not read the record which our fa thers brought across the great deep? Behold,  is there not an account concerning them of  old, that they by their secret plans did obtain  kingdoms and great glory? (Ether 3:80,81)  

And Akish did administer unto them the  oaths which were given by them of old who  also sought power, which had been handed  down, even from Cain who was a murderer  

from the beginning; And they were kept up by  the power of the devil to administer these  oaths unto the people to keep them in dark ness, to help such as sought power to gain  power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to  lie, and to commit all manner of wickedness  and whoredoms. (Ether 3:89,90)  

Yea, why do ye build up your secret abomi nations to get gain, and cause that widows  should mourn before the Lord? And also or phans to mourn before the Lord? And also the  blood of their fathers and their husbands to  cry unto the Lord from the ground for venge ance upon your heads? (Mormon 4:55)  

And it came to pass that there arose a rebel lion among the people, because of that secret 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 7 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

combination which was built up to get power  and gain… (Ether 4:107)  

10. God’s judgments were and are upon those  who join themselves to such combinations.29 

And thus the judgments of God did come  upon these workers of darkness and secret  combinations; yea, and cursed be the land for  ever and ever unto those workers of darkness  and secret combinations, even unto destruc tion, except they repent before they are fully  ripe. (Alma 17:64)  

O how could you have forgotten your God in  the very day that he has delivered you? But  behold, it is to get gain, to be praised of men;  yea, and that ye might get gold and silver;  And ye have set your hearts upon the riches  and the vain things of this world, for the which  ye do murder and plunder and steal and bear  false witness against your neighbor and do all  manner of iniquity; and for this cause, wo  shall come unto you, except ye shall repent!  

For if ye will not repent, behold, this great  city, and also all those great cities which are  round about, which are in the land of our pos session, shall be taken away, that ye shall  have no place in them, for behold, the Lord  will not grant unto you strength, as He has  hitherto done, to withstand against your ene mies. For behold, thus saith the Lord: I will  not shew unto the wicked of My strength, to  one more than the other, save it be unto those  who repenteth of their sins and hearken unto  My words;  

Now therefore, I would that ye should be hold, my brethren, that it shall be better for  the Lamanites than for you, except ye shall re pent; for behold, they are more righteous than  you, for they have not sinned against that  great knowledge which ye have received;  Therefore, the Lord will be merciful unto  them; yea, He will lengthen out their days and  

29 (cf. Ether 4:97)  

increase their seed, even when thou shalt be  utterly destroyed, except thou shalt repent.  Yea, wo be unto you because of that great  abomination which has come among you!  And ye have united yourselves unto it, yea, to  that secret band which was established by  Gaddianton.  

Yea, wo shall come unto you because of that  pride which ye have suffered to enter your  hearts, which hath lifted you up beyond that  which is good because of your exceeding great  riches.  

Yea, wo be unto you because of your wick edness and abominations! And except ye re pent, ye shall perish! Yea, even your lands  shall be taken from you and ye shall be de stroyed from off the face of the earth. (Hela man 3:21-30)  

11. Because of their secret societies, the people  rejected the words of the Lord’s prophets.30 

And they did reject all the words of the  prophets because of their secret society and  wicked abominations. (Ether 4:114)  

… great and marvelous were the prophecies of  Ether! But they esteemed him as naught and  cast him out, and he hid himself in the cavity  of a rock by day, and by night he went forth  viewing the things which should come upon  the people; And as he dwelt in the cavity of a  rock, he made the remainder of this record,  viewing the destructions which came upon the  people, by night. And it came to pass that in  that same year which he was cast out from  among the people; there began to be a great  war among the people, for there were many  who rose up who were mighty men and sought  to destroy Coriantumr by their secret plans of  wickedness of which hath been spoken. (Ether  6:14-16)  

12. These secret societies or combinations de- 

30 (cf. III Nephi 3:41,42 with III Nephi 4:66) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 8 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

stabilize governments.  

And the regulations of the government were  destroyed because of the secret combination  of the friends and kindreds of those who mur dered the prophets. (III Nephi 3:41)  

And it came to pass that they did have their  signs, yea, their secret signs and their secret  words; and this that they might distinguish a  brother who had entered into the covenant,  that whatsoever wickedness his brother should  do, he should not be injured by his brother,  nor by those who did belong to his band who  had taken this covenant. And thus they might  murder and plunder and steal and commit  whoredoms and all manner of wickedness  contrary to the laws of their country, and also  the laws of their God. (Helaman 2:146,147) 

And thus they did obtain the sole manage ment of the government, insomuch that they  did trample under their feet and smite and  rend and turn their backs upon the poor and  the meek and the humble followers of God.  And thus we see that they were in an awful  state and ripening for an everlasting destruc tion. (Helaman 2:166,167)  

For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it  [secret combination] up seeketh to overthrow  the freedom of all lands, nations, and coun tries; And it bringeth to pass the destruction of  all people; for it is built up by the devil, who is  the father of all lies, even that same liar who  beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same  liar which hath caused man to commit murder  from the beginning, which hath hardened the  hears of men that they have murdered the  prophets and stoned them and cast them out  from the beginning. (Ether 3:99-101)  

13. God will destroy these secret works of dark ness so He might bring Zion again upon the  earth.  

And he that fighteth against Zion shall per ish, saith God; for he that raiseth up a king  against Me shall perish; for I the Lord, the  King of heaven, will be their king, and I will  be a light upon them forever that hear My  words.  

Wherefore, for this cause, that My covenants  may be fulfilled which I have made unto the  children of men, that I will do unto them while  they are in the flesh, I must needs destroy the  secret works of darkness, and of murders and  of abominations; Wherefore, he that fighteth  against Zion, both Jew and Gentile, both bond  and free, both male and female, shall perish:  For they are they which are the whore of all  the earth; For they which are not for Me are  against Me, saith our God; For I will fulfill  My promises which I have made unto the chil dren of men, that I will do unto them while  they are in the flesh. (II Nephi 7:20-26)  

14. Notwithstanding all their secret plans and  covenants, all things that are done in secret will  be revealed.31 

Wherefore, the things of all nations shall be  made known: yea, all things shall be made  known unto the children of men. There is  nothing which is secret, save it shall be re vealed; there is no work of darkness, save it  shall be made manifest in the light; and there  is nothing which is sealed upon the earth, save  it shall be loosed. Wherefore, all things which  have been revealed unto the children of men,  shall at that day be revealed; And Satan shall  have power over the hearts of the children of  men no more, for a long time. (II Nephi  12:96-99)  

And now, my son, these directors were pre pared that the word of God might be fulfilled  which he spake, saying: I will bring forth out  of darkness unto light all their secret works  

31 (cf. D&C 1:1 & 3:3-4,13c & Isaiah 29:27,28 IR with  Luke 2:35; see II Nephi 11:118-160) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 9 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

and their abominations; And, except they re pent, I will destroy them from off the face of  the earth; And I will bring to light all their se crets and abominations unto every nation that  shall hereafter possess the land. And now my  son, we see that they did not repent, therefore,  they have been destroyed; and thus far the  word of God has been fulfilled, yea, their se cret abominations have been brought out of  darkness and made known unto us. (Alma  17:56-58)  

But I knowing that these things must surely  be made known, and that all things which are  hid must be revealed upon the housetops, and  also that a knowledge of these things must  come unto the remnant of these people, and  also unto the Gentiles which the Lord hath  said should scatter this people, and this peo ple should be counted as nought among them.  Therefore, I write a small abridgment, daring  not to give a full account of the things which I  have seen because of the commandment which  I have received, and also that ye might not  have too great sorrow because of the wicked ness of this people. And now behold, this I  speak unto their seed, and also to the Gentiles which have care for the house of Israel, that  realize and know from whence their blessings  come. (Mormon 2:35-37)  

15. The covenant people of the Lord, even those  who have received great blessings at the Lord’s  hand, will be overrun if they harden their hearts  

against the word of the Lord and fail to give  diligent heed to His commands.  

And thus we see that the Spirit of the Lord  began to withdraw from the Nephites because  of the wickedness and the hardness of their  hearts. And thus we see that the Lord began  to pour out his Spirit upon the Lamanites be cause of their easiness and willingness to be lieve in His word. And it came to pass that the  Lamanites did hunt the band of robbers of  Gaddianton; and they did preach the word of  

God among the more wicked part of them, in somuch that this band of robbers was utterly  destroyed from among the Lamanites.  

And it came to pass on the other hand, that  the Nephites did build them up and support  them, beginning at the more wicked part of  them, until they had overspread all the land of  the Nephites and had seduced the more part of  the righteous, until they had come down to be lieve in their works and partake of their spoils  and to join with them in their secret murders  and combinations.  

And thus they did obtain the sole manage ment of the government, insomuch that they  did trample under their feet and smite and  rend and turn their backs upon the poor and  the meek and the humble followers of God.  And thus we see that they were in an awful  state and ripening for an everlasting destruc tion. (Helaman 2:162-167)  

16. The only way that proved successful in deal ing with the Gaddiantons was to preach the  word of God to them, in particular the more  wicked part of them.  

And it came to pass that the Lamanites did  hunt the band of robbers of Gaddianton; and  they did preach the word of God among the  more wicked part of them, insomuch that this  band of robbers was utterly destroyed from  among the Lamanites. (Helaman 2:164)  

17. The peoples of old received forgiveness and  the judgments of God were turned away from  them because they humbled themselves and re pented and swept away the band of Gaddianton  from among them until it was extinct.  

And the people began to plead with their  chief judges and their leaders, that they would  say unto Nephi: Behold, we know that thou  art a man of God; and therefore, cry unto the  Lord our God that he turn away from us this  famine, lest all the words which thou hast spo ken concerning our destruction, be fulfilled. 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 10 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

And it came to pass that the judges did say  unto Nephi according to the words which had  been desired. And it came to pass that when  Nephi saw that the people had repented and  did humble themselves in sackcloth, he cried  again unto the Lord, saying: O Lord, behold  this people repenteth; And they have swept  away the band of Gaddianton from amongst  them, insomuch that they have become ex tinct and they have concealed their secret  plans in the earth. Now, O Lord, because of  this their humility, wilt Thou turn away Thine  anger, and let Thine anger be appeased in the  destruction of those wicked men whom Thou  hast already destroyed? O Lord, wilt Thou  turn away Thine anger, yea, Thy fierce anger,  and cause that this famine may cease in this  land? O Lord, wilt Thou hearken unto me, and  cause that it may be done according to my  words, and send forth rain upon the face of  the earth, that she may bring forth her fruit  and her grain in the season of grain? O Lord,  Thou didst hearken unto my words when I  said, Let there be a famine that the pestilence  of the sword might cease; and I know that  Thou wilt, even at this time, hearken unto my  words, for Thou saidst, that if this people re pent, I will spare them. Yea, O Lord, and  Thou seest that they have repented because of  the famine and the pestilence and destruction  which have come unto them. And now, O  Lord, wilt Thou turn away Thine anger, and  try again if they will serve Thee? And if so, O  Lord, Thou canst bless them according to Thy  words which Thou hast said.  

And it came to pass that in the seventy and  sixth year, the Lord did turn away his anger  from the people and caused that rain should  fall upon the earth, insomuch that it did bring  

forth her fruit in the season of her fruit. And it  came to pass that it did bring forth her grain,  in the season of her grain. And behold, the  people did rejoice and glorify God, and the  whole face of the land was filled with rejoic ing; and they did no more seek to destroy  Nephi, but they did esteem him as a great  

prophet and a man of God, having great  power and authority given unto him from  God; And behold, Lehi his brother was not a  whit behind him as to things pertaining to  righteousness.  

And thus it did come to pass that the people  of Nephi began to prosper again in the land,  and began to build up their waste places, and  began to multiply and spread, even until they  did cover the whole face of the land, both on  the northward and on the southward, from the  sea west, to the sea east. And it came to pass  that the seventy and sixth year did end in  peace. (Helaman 4:10-25)  

Brotherhood of Darkness 

In his book, Brotherhood of Darkness, Dr.  Stanley Monteith reviews a number of secret  societies and organizations, clearly showing that  there are many in existence today. He further  explains that many who belong to these organi zations, such as the Masons, are unaware of the  inner workings of their organizations. Here is  one of a number of quotes he provides from  prominent Masons to substantiate his state ments:  

“Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity –  an outer organization concealing an inner brother hood of the elect. Before it is possible to intelli gently discuss the origin of the Craft, it is neces sary to establish the existence of these two sepa rate yet interdependent orders, the one visible and  the other invisible. The visible society is a splen did camaraderie of “free and accepted” men en joined to devote themselves to ethical, educational,  fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns.  The invisible society is a secret and most august  fraternity whose members are dedicated to the ser vice of a mystery arcanum arcanorum3233 

As Manly P. Hall, the writer of these words con- 

32 According to various authors, arcanum arcanorum is  said to mean secret of secrets or an ultimate secret. 33 Brotherhood of Darkness, Dr. Stanley Monteith, Bible  Belt Publishing, Oklahoma City, OK, © 2000, p. 74 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 11 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

firms, many who belong to the “outer” organiza tion(s) of Freemasonry are unaware of the inner  brotherhood, which is protected by the use of a  

degree system that initiates must pass through to  gain further “light” about the true nature of the  craft. Dr. Monteith adds, “Most Masons have  no understanding of the mysterious arcanum  arcanorum, but are used by those who do.”34  That is to say, the majority of members of this  secret society are essentially “window dressing”  for the inner brotherhood, giving it the appear ance of being concerned with various noble ac tivities and causes while being dedicated to the  service of a mystery.  

Mystery, Babylon the Great 

 What mystery does the inner brotherhood of  darkness serve? It is Mystery, Babylon the  Great, the great whore of the earth who makes  the nations drink of her fornication.  

And upon her forehead was a name written,  MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE  MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINA TIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:5)  

Let no man deceive you by any means; for  there shall come a falling away first, and that  man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  who opposeth and exalteh himself above all  this is called God, or that is worshiped; so  that he as god sitteth in the temple of God,  showing himself that he is god. Remember ye  not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you  these things? And now ye know what with holdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  

For the mystery of iniquity doth already  work, and he it is who now worketh, and  Christ suffereth him to work, until the time is  

fulfilled that he shall be taken out of the way.  And then shall that wicked one be revealed,  whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit  of his mouth, and shall destroy with the  

34 Ibid, p. 129  

brightness of his coming. Yea, the Lord, even  Jesus, whose coming is not until after there  cometh a falling away, by the working of Sa tan with all power, and signs and lying won ders, and with all deceivableness of unrighte ousness in them that perish; because they re ceived not the love of the truth, that they might  be saved. And for this cause God shall send  them strong delusion, that they should believe  a lie; that they all might be damned who be lieved not the truth, but had pleasure in un righteousness. (II Thessalonians 2:3-12 IR)  

… Behold, verily I say that the field was the  world, and the apostles were the sowers of the  seed; and after they have fallen asleep, the  great persecutor of the church, the apostate,  the whore, even Babylon, that maketh all na tions to drink of her cup, in whose hearts the  enemy, even Satan, sitteth to reign; behold,  he soweth the tares, wherefore the tares choke  the wheat and drive the church into the wil derness. (D&C 84:1)  

It is the mystery, the enemy, who persecutes the  church and drives her into the wilderness.35 

And now I show unto you a mystery, a thing  which is had in secret chambers, to bring to  pass even your destruction, in process of time,  and ye knew it not, but now I tell it unto you.  (D&C 38:4a)  

And again I say unto you, that the enemy in  the secret chambers seeketh your lives(D&C 38:6b)  

I am Also a Son of God 

Dr. Monteith notes that Albert Pike, the  leading Masonic philosopher of the nineteenth  century, clearly identified Satan, the Prince of  

Darkness, Lucifer, as the lord of their craft.36    

35 (cf. II Thessalonians 2:7 with Revelation 12:1-7 &  Helaman 5:125-139)  

36 Ibid (Monteith), pp. 126-128. 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 12 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

Simply stated, Albert Pike was one of many  who has believed Satan’s lie, that he is also a  son of God, even the Only Begotten (cf. D&C  22:12).  

And Adam and Eve blessed the name of  God; and they made all things known unto  their sons and their daughters. And Satan  

came among them, saying, I am also a son of  God, and he commanded them, saying, Be lieve it not. And they believed it not; and they  loved Satan more than God. And men began  from that time forth to be carnal, sensual and  devilish. (Genesis 4:12,13 IR)  

And now, when Moses had said these words,  Satan cried with a loud voice, and went upon  the earth, and commanded, saying, I am the  Only Begotten, worship me. (D&C 22:12)  

Like Gaddianton of old, Albert Pike fell  prey to Satan’s cunning and entered into a cove nant, with its secret oaths, to carry on the work  

of darkness in his generation and beyond and,  thus, to perpetuate the craft first delivered to  Cain.37 All such oaths come of evil.  

Again, it hath been written by them of old  time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt  perform unto the Lord thine oaths. But I say  unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven,  for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it  is his footstool; neither by Jerusalem, for it is  the city of the great King; neither shalt thou  swear by thy head, because thou canst not  make one hair white or black. But let your  communications be Yea, yea; Nay, nay; for  whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil(Matthew 5:37-39)  

Which Enoch’s City? 

Throughout the ages many have tapped the  “seething energies of Lucifer,” described in the  

37 (cf. Helaman 2:150-156)  

writings of Manly P. Hall, the noted Masonic  author.38 In return for their worship, Satan gave  them wealth and power – just as he had done for  the secret order of Gaddianton.39  

The first was Cain, who murdered to obtain  his brother’s flock.40 Once expelled from the  presence of the Lord (spiritual death), he built a  city he called Enoch.41 As Bob Moore explains  in his book, The Restitution, Cain founded his  city to gain wealth and prominence.42 

Later, Enoch, a man of the lineage of Seth,  also built a city.43 Unlike the city founded by  Cain, the city built by Seth’s descendant was not  established to gain wealth and power. Rather it  was founded for a city of the righteous, even  Zion. As it is written, her citizens were of one  heart and of one mind, and dwelt in righteous ness; and there were no poor among them.44  

These two cities stand in stark contrast unto  this day. Just as Satan put it in the heart of Cain  to deceive many by building a counterfeit city  called Enoch, the secret societies continue to  labor to build anew the city of Enoch founded  by Cain. They refer to it by terms such as the  New Order, Atlantis, etc. They believe it is  God’s plan to unite all races, religions, and  creeds under Lucifer.45 It is a counterfeit utopia.  

The true city of Enoch, called the city of Ho liness, even Zion, awaits a people who will for sake the lies of the devil and not be deceived  into thinking the city of the secret societies is  the city of our God. It is not. The city they pur sue is that great and spacious building which  will fall, even MYSTERY, BABYLON THE  GREAT.  

And I [Lehi] also cast my eyes round about  and beheld a great and spacious building,

and it stood, as it were, in the air high above  the earth; and it was filled with people, both  old and young, both male and female; and  their manner of dress was exceeding  fine…And he also saw other multitudes press ing their way toward that great and spacious  building…and great was the multitude that  did enter into that strange building…  (I Nephi 2:71-74,79,82)  

And I beheld that they were in a large and  spacious building like unto the building which  my father saw. And the angel of the Lord  spake unto me, saying: Behold the world and  the wisdom thereof; Yea, behold, the house of  Israel hath gathered together to fight against  the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And it came  to pass that I saw and bear record that the  great and spacious building was the pride of  the world, and it fell, and the fall thereof was  exceeding great. And the angel of the Lord  spake unto me, saying: Thus shall be the de struction of all nations, kindreds, tongues and  people that shall fight against the twelve apos tles of the Lamb. (I Nephi 3:90-95)  

And the time speedily cometh that great  things are to be shown forth unto the children  of men; but without faith shall not anything be  shown forth except desolations upon Baby lon, the same which has made all nations  drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornica tions. (D&C 34:3d)  

And the angels are waiting the great com mand to reap down the earth, to gather the  tares that they may be burned; and, behold,  the enemy is combined. (D&C 38:3c)  

Get Ye Out of Babylon 

As it was in the beginning, so it is today;  many love the secret workings of darkness, call ing good evil and evil good.46 They keep Sa- 

46 (cf. Matthew 24:44-51, John 3:19,20 & Isaiah 5:20-26)  

tan’s commandments, which are carnal, sensual,  and devilish, because they love Satan more than  God.47 The best gifts, faith, hope and charity  (i.e. the fountain of all righteousness),48 are far  from the thoughts and intents of their hearts.49  Consequently, the Lord has caused the warning  voice to be lifted up anew in these latter days,  saying:  

Hearken, O ye people of my church, saith  the voice of him who dwells on high, and  whose eyes are upon all men; yea, verily I say,  Hearken ye people from afar, and ye that are  upon the islands of the sea, listen together; for  verily the voice of the Lord is unto all men,  and there is none to escape, and there is no  eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall  not hear, neither heart that shall not be pene trated; and the rebellious shall be pierced  with much sorrow, for their iniquities shall  be spoken upon the housetops, and their se cret acts shall be revealed(D&C 1:1a-c)  

Wherefore the voice of the Lord is unto the  ends of the earth, that all that will hear may  hear; prepare ye, prepare ye for that which is  to come, for the Lord is nigh; and the anger of  the Lord is kindled, and his sword is bathed in  heaven, and it shall fall upon the inhabitants  of the earth; and the arm of the Lord shall be  revealed; and the day cometh that they who  will not hear the voice of the Lord, neither the  voice of his servants, neither give heed to the  words of the prophets and apostles, shall be  cut off from among the people; for they have  strayed from mine ordinances, and have bro ken mine everlasting covenant; they seek not  the Lord to establish his righteousness, but  every man walketh in his own way, and after  the image of his own god, whose image is in  the likeness of the world, and whose sub stance is that of an idol, which waxeth old    

47 (Genesis 4:13 IR)  

48 (cf. Ether 5:29 with D&C 46:3c-4a & I Corinthians  12:31-13:13) 

49 (cf. Psalm 10:4) 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 14 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

and shall perish in Babylon, even Babylon  the great, which shall fall. (D&C 1:3)  

Babylon’s destruction is sure.50 Therefore the  Lord commands all who will hear His voice to  get out of Babylon, that the great and spacious  building … the pride of the world, to go out  from the nations, from the midst of wickedness,  which is spiritual Babylon.  

Go ye out from Babylon. Be ye clean that  bear the vessels of the Lord. Call your solemn  assemblies, and speak often one to another.  And let every man call upon the name of the  Lord; yea, verily I say unto you again, The  time has come when the voice of the Lord is  unto you, Go ye out of Babylon; gather ye out  from among the nations, from the four winds,  from one end of heaven to the other.  

Send forth the elders of my church unto the  nations which are afar off; unto the islands of  the sea; send forth unto foreign lands; call  upon all nations; firstly, upon the Gentiles,  and then upon the Jews. And, behold, and lo,  this shall be their cry, and the voice of the  Lord unto all people: Go ye forth unto the  land of Zion, that the borders of my people  may be enlarged, and that her stakes may be  strengthened, and that Zion may go forth unto  the regions round about; yea, let the cry go  forth among all people: Awake and arise and  go forth to meet the Bridegroom. Behold, and  lo, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet  him. Prepare yourselves for the great day of  the Lord.  

Watch, therefore, for ye know neither the  day nor the hour. Let them, therefore, who are  among the Gentiles, flee unto Zion. And let  them who be of Judah, flee unto Jerusalem,  unto the mountains of the Lord’s house. Go ye  out from among the nations, even from  Babylon, from the midst of wickedness,  which is spiritual Babylon. (D&C 108:2b 4b)  

50 (cf. Revelation 18:1-24 with D&C 34:3d)  

Awake to a Sense of Your Awful Situation 

 While Moroni was abridging the record of  Ether – and while avoiding capture by the La manites – the Lord had him write specifically to  us, this Gentile nation, about secret combina tions. The message revealed the wisdom of God  in showing us how secret combinations had  brought destruction to the peoples who had in habited this land long before us. Simply stated,  the same will happen to us if we fail to repent  and allow these secret combinations to get  above us.  

And whatsoever nation shall uphold such  secret combinations to get power and gain,  until they shall spread over the nation, behold,  they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not  suffer that the blood of His saints, which shall  be shed by them, shall always cry unto Him  from the ground for vengeance upon them and  yet He avenge them not;  

Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in  God that these things should be shown unto  you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins,  

and suffer not that these murderous combi nations shall get above you, which are built  up to get power and gain, and the work, yea,  even the work of destruction come upon you; Yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eter nal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow  and destruction if ye shall suffer these things  to be;  

Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you,  when ye shall see these things come among  you, that ye shall awake to a sense of your  awful situation because of this secret combi nation which shall be among you, or wo be  unto it because of the blood of them who have  been slain! For they cry from the dust for  vengeance upon it, and also upon those who  build it up. For it cometh to pass that whoso  buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the free dom of all lands, nations and countries; And it  bringeth to pass the destruction of all people;  for it is built up by the devil, which is the fa-

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 15 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

ther of all lies, even that same liar which be guiled our first parents, Yea, even that same  liar which hath caused man to commit murder  from the beginning, which hath hardened the  hearts of men that they have murdered the  prophets and stoned them and cast them out  from the beginning.  

Wherefore, I, Moroni, am commanded to  write these things that evil may be done away,  and that the time may come that satan may  have no power upon the hearts of the children  of men, but that they may be persuaded to do  good continually, that they may come unto the  fountain of all righteousness and be saved.  (Ether 3:95-102)  

 Will we heed the Lord’s command to awake  to a sense of our awful situation and repent as  admonished or will we stay and sleep until the  Lord calls again for the wicked to arise and be  judged?51 If we heed His word to be one in  Christ – to be more wise than those of old – our  Lord promises to preserve us from destruction.52  Otherwise we will be swept off of this land as  those before us according to the decrees of God  because we failed to worship our Lord.  

And now we can behold the decrees of God  concerning this land, that it is a land of prom ise and whatsoever nation shall posses it shall  serve God, or they shall be swept off when the  

fullness of His wrath shall come upon them;  And the fullness of His wrath cometh upon  them when they are ripened in iniquity; for  behold, this is a land which is choice above all  other lands; Wherefore, he that doth possess it  shall serve God or shall be swept off, for it is  the everlasting decrees of God; and it is not  until the fullness of iniquity among the chil dren of the land that they are swept off.  

And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles,  that ye may know the decrees of God, that ye  may repent and not continue in your iniquities    

51 (cf. D&C 43:5 with D&C 85:29:30 & Alma 19:5661)  52 (cf. Mormon 4:97 with D&C 38:6a with  

Genesis 7:69 IR  

until the fullness come, that ye may not bring  down the fullness of the wrath of God upon  you as the inhabitants of the land hath hith erto done.  

Behold, this is a choice land; and whatso ever nation shall possess it shall be free from  bondage and from captivity and from all other  nations under heaven, if they will but serve the  God of the land which is Jesus Christ, which  hath been manifested by the things which we  have written. (Ether 1:31-35)  

The call is plain and precious.  

Hearken, O, ye Gentiles, and hear the words  of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God,  which He hath commanded me that I should  speak concerning you. For, behold, He com mandeth me that I should write, saying:  

Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked  ways! And repent of your evil doings, of your  lyings and deceivings, and of your whore doms, and of your secret abominations, and  your idolatries, and of your murders, and your  priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your  strifes, and from all your wickedness and  abominations, And come unto Me, and be bap tized in My name, that ye may receive a remis sion of your sins, and be filled with the Holy  Ghost, that ye may be numbered with My peo ple, which are of the house of Israel.  (III Nephi 14:1-3)  

Oh, that we would hear the voice of the Lord,  that which the Spirit is saying to the church, to  heed the call and flee the destruction to come.  

When we do, according to His everlasting cove nant, the Lord will bring again Zion upon the  earth.  

And this is mine everlasting covenant, that  when thy posterity shall embrace the truth,  and look upward, then shall Zion look down ward, and all the heavens shall shake with  gladness, and the earth shall tremble with joy;  And the general assembly of the church of 

The Enemy in the Secret Chambers 16 ©2006, Dwight A. Burford  

the Firstborn shall come down out of heaven,  and possess the earth, and shall have place  until the end come. And this is mine everlast ing covenant, which I made with they father  Enoch. (Genesis 9:22,23 IR)  

In the words of Jacob, O be wise! What can I  say more?53 Zion awaits.
