THE WHITE HORSE PROPHECY: BY Edwin Rushion


This prophecy is not consider to be true by the Mormon (or LDS Church). The leaders in the church have rejected this as being from The Prophet Joseph Smith due to the fact that it was not given to anyone else or stated to anyone else in the church or to other leaders of the church during Joseph's lifetime. However, at the time that this prophecy was given the issues of the world were not as they are today. With what is going on in today's world, some question whether or not this prophecy is now starting to come true or that it will be true in the near future. Some people in the LDS (or Mormon) Church have heard of this prophecy and think that it is from Joseph Smith and both think and know it to be true.

Another reason that this prophecy is not accepted by the LDS Church, is that at the end of the prophecy it talks about Jesus Christ being on the Earth before his Second Coming. Most know that Jesus Christ will come back, coming from heaven. The prophecy states the He will be on the Earth before His return and that only those who are looking for him or know who he really is, will be able to see him.

Most people in the LDS (or Mormon) church know that Jesus Christ will meet with elect people before His second coming. However, they do not think that we will be reborn as a man; or in other words, they do not believe that he will be reincarnated. If you read the prophecy just right it sounds as though the prophecy suggests reincarnation.

The LDS (or Mormon) Church does not believe in reincarnation. However, other religions do believe in it and even some of Christ's disciples told Jesus, while he was on the Earth, that some people in the area where they were, thought that Jesus was the reincarnated Elijah. In the Jewish faith, they do believe in reincarnation and some think that Jesus Christ was Elijah reborn. I am not sure if that is what Joesph Smith was referring to or not, but one could, in this context, see that this is what he was saying.

One other thing that I found interesting, is the mention of the temple in Jackson County, which is now only a temple lot. If you read my post on the 3 kinds of temples you will see what I am talking about. http://onegodmanyreligions.blogspot.com/2014/10/there-are-three-kinds-of-temples.html

As to the people in the prophecy the people described in the prophecy are the White, Red, Black, and Pale Horse. The White Horse is the Mormon people; The Red Horse is the Native American people; The Black Horse is the African American people and/or African people in Africa; and The Pale Horse is anyone living in the United States that is not a part of the Mormon people.


The following is an account of what the prophet, Joseph Smith, said to Theodore Turley and Edwin Rushion while still living, in Nauvoo. This is by Edwin Rushion, and is known as THE WHITE HORSE PROPHECY.

"On or about the sixth day of May, 1843, a grand review of the Nauvoo Legion was held in Nauvoo. The Prophet Joseph complimented them for their good discipline and evolutions performed. The weather being hot, he called for a glass of water. With the glass of water in his hand he said, "I drink to you a toast to the overthrow of the mobocrats."

The next morning a man who had heard the Prophet give the toast returned to visit the mansion of the Prophet, and so abused him with bad language, that the man was ordered out by the Prophet. It was while the two were out that my attention was attracted to them and hearing the man speaking in a loud tone of voice, I went toward them; the man finally leaving. There were present the Prophet Joseph Smith, Theodore Turley and myself. The Prophet began talking to us of the mobbings and the drivings and persecution we as a people had endured, but said he, "We will have worse things to see; our persecutors will have all the mobbings they want. Don't wish them any harm, for when you see their sufferings you will shed bitter tears for them."

While this conversation was going on we stood by his south wicket gate in a triangle. Turing to me he said: "I want to tell you something. I will speak in a parable like unto John the Revelator. You will go to the Rocky Mountains, and you will be a great and mighty people established there, which I will call the White Horse of Peace and Safety." When the Prophet said you will see it, I asked him, "Where will you be at that time?" He said, "I shall never go there. Your enemies will continue to follow you with persecutions and will make obnoxious laws against you in Congress to destroy the White Horse, but you will have a friend or two to defend you to throw out the worst part of the laws, so they will not hurt much. You must continue to petition Congress all the time, but they will treat you like strangers and aliens and they will not give you your rights but will govern you with strangers and commissioners; you will see the constitution of the United States almost destroyed; it will hang by a thread, as it were, as fine as the finest silk fiber."

At this point the Prophet's countenance became sad; he said, "I love the constitution. It was made by the inspiration of God, and it will be preserved and saved by the efforts of the White Horse and the Red Horse, who will combine in its defense. The White Horse will raise an ensign on the tops of the mountains of peace and safety. The White Horse will find the mountains full of minerals and they will become very rich. You will see silver piled up in the streets.

"You will see gold shoveled up like sand. Gold will be of little value even in a mercantile capacity, for the people of the world will have something else to do in seeking for salvation.

"The time will come when the banks in every nation will fail and only two places will be safe where people can deposit their gold and treasures. These places will be the White Horse and England's vaults.

"A terrible revolution will take place in the land of America, such as has never been seen before; for the land will be literally left without a supreme government, and every species of wickedness will run rampant. Father will be against son, and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother. The most terrible scenes of murder and bloodshed and rapine that have ever been looked upon will take place. Peace will be taken from the earth and there will be no peace only in the Rocky Mountains. This will cause many hundreds and thousands of the honest in heart to gather there; not because they would be saints but for safety and because they would not take up the sword against their neighbor.

"You will be so numerous that you will be in danger of famine, but not for the want of seed time and harvest, but because of so many to be fed. Many will come with bundles under their arms to escape the calamities, and there will be no escape except by fleeing to Zion.

"Those that come to you will try to keep the laws and be one with you, for they will see your unity and the greatness of your organization. The Turkish Empire or the Crescent will be one of the first powers that will be disrupted, for freedom must be given for the Gospel to be preached in the Holy Land.

"The Lord took of the best blood of the nations and planted them on the small islands now called England and Great Britain, and gave them great power in the nations for a thousand years and their power will continue with them, that they may keep the balance of power and keep Russia from usurping her power over all the world. England and France are now bitter enemies, but they will be allied together and be united to keep Russia from conquering the world.

"The two Popes, Greek and Catholic, will come together and be united. The Protestant religions do not know how much they are indebted to Henry the VIII for throwing off the Pope's Bull and establishing the Protestant faith. He was the only monarch who could do so at the time, and he did it because this nation, England, was at his back to sustain him. One of the peculiar features in England is the established red coat, a uniform making so remarkable a mark to shoot at, and yet they have conquered wherever they have gone. The reason for this will be known by them some day. The Lion and the Unicorn of Israel is their ensign, the wisdom and statesmanship of England comes from having so much of the blood of Israel in the nation.

"While the terrible revolution of which I have spoken has been going on, England will be neutral until it becomes so inhuman that she will interfere to stop the shedding of blood. England and France will unite together to subdue the nations; they will find the nations so broken up and so many claiming government, till there will be no responsible government. Then it will appear to the other nations or powers as though England had taken possession of the country. The Black Horse will flee to the invaders and will join with them for they will have fear of the coming slaves again, knowing England did not believe in slavery, fleeing to them they believe would make them safe; armed with British bayonets the doings of the Black Horse will be terrible." (Here the Prophet said he could not bear to look longer upon the scene as shown him in vision and asked the Lord to close the scene.)

Continuing, he said, "During this time the great White Horse will have gathered strength sending out Elders to gather the honest in heart among the Pale Horse, or people of the United States, to stand by the Constitution of the United States, as it was given by inspiration of God.

"In these days God will set up a kingdom, never to be thrown down, for other kingdoms to come unto. And these kingdoms that will not let the Gospel be preached will be humbled until they will.

"England, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Holland, and Belgium have a considerable amount of blood of Israel among their people which must be gathered. These nations will submit to the kingdom of God. England will be the last of these kingdoms to surrender, but when she does she will do so as a whole in comparison as she threw off the Catholic power. The nobility know that the Gospel is true but it has not enough pomp and grandeur and influence for them to embrace it. They are proud and will not acknowledge the kingdom of God, or come unto it, until they see the power which it will have. Peace and safety in the Rocky Mountains will be protected by a cordon band of the White Horse and the Red Horse.

"The coming of the Messiah among this people will be so natural, that only those who see Him will know that He has come, but He will come and give his laws unto Zion, and minister unto His people. This will not be His coming in the clouds of heaven to take vengeance on the wicked of the world. The Temple in Jackson County will be built in this generation. The saints will think there will not be time to build it, but with all the help you will receive you can put up a great temple quickly. They will have all the gold, silver, and precious stones; for these things only will be used for the beautifying of the temple; all the skilled mechanics you want, and the Ten Tribes of Israel will help you build it. When you see this land bound with iron you may look toward Jackson County."

At this point he made a pause, and looking up as though the vision was still in view, he said, "There is a land beyond the Rocky Mountains that will be invaded by the heathen Chinese unless great care and protection are given." Speaking of the heathen nations he said, "Where there is no law there is no condemnation, and this will apply to them. Power will be given the White Horse to rebuke nations afar off, and they will be one with the White Horse, but when the law goes forth they will obey; for the law will go forth from Zion. The last great struggle Zion will have to contend with will be when the whole of the Americas will be make the Zion of our God. Those opposing will be called Gog and Magog (some of the world led by the Russian Czar) and their power will be great, but all opposition will be overcome and then this land will be the Zion of our God.""

The strange "magical" amulet found at the city of Nea Paphos in southwestern Cyprus.



Today, I will be discussing what I think the pictures and writing on this amulet mean. To find out more about where this amulet came from check out the Huffing Post article: Here. In another post, I will discuss more about the "magic" of the amulet and why one would need it.

The writing and pictures on the amulet are over 1,500 years old and date back to just after 500 years after the death of Jesus Christ.

The left side of the image above shows one side of the amulet and the right side of the image shows the other side of the amulet. So when referring to the amulet, I will say the left side or right side. I am not sure which side is the front or back, and this way I do not want to mistake one for the other.

The left side of the image shows what looks like one or more Gods.

The God lying down in the boat is the Egyptian God, Osiris, and he is usually identified as the God of the afterlife, death, life, and resurrection.

The God that is sitting down is the Greek God of silence, Harpocrates, he is also known as the Egyptian God, Horus, who is the God of the sun, sky and kingship. He is also the son of Osiris. Horus is also know for representing the newborn Sun rising each day at dawn.

The God that is next to the snake is the Egyptian God, Ra. All forms of life were believed to have been created by Ra, who called each of them into existence by speaking their secret names. The snake is a sign of power. It is also the sign for healing and protection.

The bird is what I believe to be either an  Egyptian Bennu or a Greek Phoenix; both of which symbolize new life and being reborn from death.

The alligator may be the God, Sobek. However, the picture is not a man with an alligator head but is of a whole alligator; either way it is another sign of protection; it is a protection from harm or evil influences.

The symbol that looks like a C is what I believe to be the moon and the the symbol that looks like a star is just that, a star or the sun. The moon is to the left of the God, Horus, and the sun is to the right of him. The interesting thing is that Horus is looking at the moon and not the sun or stars.

In the times of the Egyptians, the moon was seen as a God, Khonsu; he was to watch over night travelers and to protect against wild animals, increase male fertility, and aid with healing. The moon is in the shape of a crescent, which when shining is believed to be when women would conceive, cattle became fertile, and the nostrils and throats of all God's creatures were filled with fresh air; symbolizing good health. When a crescent moon appears next to a God, it is believed to be the sign of a king; therefore, Horus is being recognized as also being a king.

The star appears to the right of Horus. The interesting thing about that is the sun comes up in the East, which is to right. The star is also a sign of the Heavens. However, Horus is not looking at the Heavens, rather he is looking at the moon; which in this case, is actually looking over the Earth. Thus, Horus is looking over the Earth rather than the Heavens.

So who is who? Well here it is: Osiris is God, also known as Heavenly Father; Harpocrates, also known as Horus is Jesus, also known as Yahweh (or Jehovah); and Ra or Re is Michael also known as Adam.

God, Heavenly Father, is the God of the Afterlife. Some would say, "Is not Jesus the God of the Afterlife?" Yes and no. God, the Father, is what man can become as man is what God once was. So if God, the Father, was a man then he overcome death before Jesus did and in turn is the God of the all the afterlife. Whereas Jesus is only the God of the afterlife for this Earth. Jesus is the King of Kings and is also the Son of God. Adam is a follower of Jesus, so Adam follows what Jesus does. Adam helped Jesus to make the Earth. In the image on the left, Re (or Ra) is following what Harpocrates (or Horus) is doing my putting his hand up to his mouth. By doing this they are keeping the name of God (or Heavenly Father) a secret. However, his name is not a secret, rather it is to be revered.

The image on the right is the writing :

ιαεωβαφρενεμουνοθιλαρικριφιαευεαιφιρκιραλιθονυομενερφαβωεαι.

The writing is the same forwards as it is backwards. The writing says "Yahweh is the bearer of the secret name, the lion of Re secure in his shrine."Yahweh is another name for Jesus Christ. Yahweh is a sacred name in old Jewish tradition and therefore, Jesus is often simply referred to as "the Lord" in the Bible, whereas here he is being referred to by his sacred name, Yahweh. Re is another name for Ra, or Michael (or Adam).

So what is the meaning of the saying? Well here it is: Jesus (or Jehovah) is the bearer of the secret name of God, the Father. The lion of Michael (or Adam) secure in his shrine. Shine here meaning place of worship. Now Jesus is the Lamb of God but the Lion or King of Man. Jesus is therefore secure in the shrine, meaning that Adam shall have no other Gods and that the way back to the Father is through Jesus.

Another interesting thing about the Amulet is where it was found. The amulet was found in the city of Nea Paphos or New Paphos in the country of Cyprus. Which is the modern mythical birthplace of the Greek God, Aphrodite, or the Roman God, Venus. Venus is the morning and the evening star. Some say that Jesus is the morning and the evening star; however, it really is Venus, which is also known as the God of love, beauty, fertility, prosperity and desire. Jesus, on the other hand, is the Sun rising each day.

We know that Jesus may have been married to Mary. If that is the case, then Mary, not Jesus, is the Morning and Evening star and Venus (or Aphrodite) appears next to to the sun which is the Son of God. We also know the there is a Heavenly Mother. It goes without saying that Adam married Eve. Why would Jesus not have been married? If Adam follows Jesus and Jesus is the Son of God, the Father, then God has a wife too and Jesus was married just like Adam was to Eve. Just like Jesus needed to be baptized to fulfill all righteousness, Jesus had a wife and God, the Father, has a wife- Heavenly Mother. So here is another question to ask our selves. Whose name is to be a secret Heavenly Father or Heavenly Mother? This is a topic for another blog post.

I Stopped Caring Today: By Lt Daniel Furseth

"Yes, I stopped caring today. But tomorrow, I will put my uniform back on and I will care again."  

Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man. I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve. I stopped caring today because a once noble profession has become despised, hated, distrusted, and mostly unwanted.

I stopped caring today because parents refuse to teach their kids right from wrong and blame us when they are caught breaking the law. I stopped caring today because parents tell their little kids to be good or “the police will take you away” embedding a fear from year one. Moms hate us in their schools because we frighten them and remind them of the evil that lurks in the world.

They would rather we stay unseen, but close by if needed, but readily available to “fix their kid.” I stopped caring today because we work to keep our streets safe from mayhem in the form of reckless, drunk, high, or speeding drivers, only to be hated for it, yet hated even more because we didn’t catch the drunk before he killed someone they may know.

Nevertheless, we are just another tool used by government to generate “revenue.” I stopped caring today because Liberals hate the police as we carry guns, scare kids, and take away their drugs. We always kill innocent people with unjust violence. We are called bullies for using a Taser during a fight, but are condemned further for not first tasing the guy who pulls a gun on us.

And if we do have to shoot, we are asked “why didn’t you just shoot the gun out of their hand?” And when one of us is killed by the countless attacks that do happen (but are rarely reported in the mainstream media) the haters say, “Its just part of the job.” I stopped caring today because Conservatives hate us as we are “the Government.” We try to take away their guns, freedoms, and liberty at every turn.

We represent a “Police State” where “jackbooted badge-wearing thugs” randomly attack innocent people without cause or concern for constitutional rights. We are Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Rodney King all rolled into one lone police officer stopping to help change an old lady’s tire. I stopped caring today as no one wants us around, but instantly demands answers, results, arrests, when a crime takes place.

If a crime isn’t solved within the allocated 60 minutes it takes CSI on television, we are inept, incompetent, or covering something up. If we do get “lucky” it was just that and everyone with a Facebook account can post wonderful comments of how “they” would solve the case and how “we” are not nearly as clever.

I stopped caring today because a video of a cop six states away, from a department that you never heard of, screws up and forgets his oath of honor, thus firing up an internet lynch-mob of cop haters even though 99% of us work twice as hard not to end up in the news and to still be “the good guys.” We are “militarized” because we wear body armor and kevlar helmets when shots are fired or rocks thrown at us and carry scary looking rifles even though everyone knows that they are easier to shoot and are more accurate than a handgun or a shotgun.

I stopped caring today because the culture of today’s instantly connected youth is only there to take and never give back. To never accept responsibility for ones actions, but to blame everyone else instead of themselves. To ask “what is in it for me?” versus “what can I do for you?”

To idolize gangsters, thugs, sexually promiscuous behavior, and criminals over hard work, dedication, and achievement. To argue that getting stoned should be a right, yet getting a job or an education is a hassle. To steal versus earn. To hate versus help.

Yes, I stopped caring today. But tomorrow, I will put my uniform back on and I will care again.

This is how I feel most days as a Security Officer working with Law Enforcement. Although not to the same degree as Law Enforcement. However, we are right there with them because we are looked at as if we are cops or in a position of authority and in some states do have police powers of arrest.

Dec. 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor

Dec. 7, 1941 "a day that will live in infamy". 73 years ago today, the world changed for a second time. This was also the second time that the United States of America had entered into a World War. The country of Japan hit and without provoking by the United States attacked the Navy at Pearl Harbor. The United States lost most of it's Pacific Fleet. Today we honor those man and woman that lost their lives on the Battle Ships and other ships in that harbor. For those that did not die that day and went on to fight the good fight, We say Thank You!!!

                                      Thank You to those who fought the good fight.

Feeding the Homeless.

When did feeding those in need become a crime? If that is the case then the L.D.S. Church needs to stop feeding its members who need it and stop paying rent for those that need it or we all are going to go to jail. Let them be hungry and homeless because now it is a crime to do so. What if the Lord Jesus Christ had that way of thinking? I hope and pray that God will not let this happen any more.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865614425/US-cities-restrict-sharing-food-with-homeless-people.html


Taking care of the poor is not a crime. We are commanded by the Lord to take care of the needy, feed the hungry, and cloth the naked. I would gladly go to jail for following the LAWS OF GOD before I would follow any laws of the land that would go against that of God. Article of Faith # 12 (We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law). However, like that of Dr. King once put it, (and this is my own words of what I think he would have said). "We must not follow laws that are unjust and to deprive that which has been given to us by God."

Are we not all people in need? Do we not all need the Lord (Jesus Christ) and are God (Heavenly Father)'s help in life? How can we look at others hardship and not care for them. I would gladly give all that I can to help others.

There are three kinds of Temples.



Preparatory Temples: Which are places of learning. Which was referred to as the School of the Prophets. They are Meeting and or Assembly Halls. A place to learn by the Prophets and the leaders of the church, as while as angles or messengers from Heaven. They are not church meeting house, they are Temples. Plans for other temples like this one was made before the Kirtland Temple was built. However, The Kirtland Temple was the first and only one built like this that is still standing today. The others were never built due to the church was run out of the land.

The only other Preparatory Temples were the Endowment Houses. One was built in Salt Lake City Utah and was used like a Modern Temple with some of the Ordinances used today. The other is the Spring City Endowment House in Utah. They are Houses of the Lord, meaning they were considered to be like Temples. However, because they were never a Modern Temple; they do not have all of the Ordinances used like a Modern Temple does today. Only the Spring City Endowment House is still standing. However, it is not in use and is considered a Historic Site. Only Endowments for the living were done in the Endowment Houses. Endowments for the dead are for Modern Temples and Complete Temple(s).

Modern Temples: Which has all of the things one would need in getting back to are Father in Heaven with the Ordinances one would need for themselves and their families. Both for the living and the dead. These are the Temples that are used by the L.D.S. Church today.

The Complete Temple: This/Theses Temple(s) has not been built yet and will have all of the things that a Preparatory and Modern Temple has with a few things added to it. One of them being The Throne of the Lords. Which will be the Throne Room of Jesus and God. This will be their place and house when Jesus comes to rule in the 1,000 years of pace. All Temples are the House of the Lord. However, This/These Temple(s) will be the Holy of Holies. This/These Temples are the only Temples in which God the Father and his Son Jesus will both be seated side by side on Earth. This is my understanding of the Complete Temple(s) and not that of the L.D.S. Church. Again land has been set aside for temples to be built. However, three (3) Temple sites/ location are waiting for the Lord to say which kind(s) will be built and when. They are Far West Temple, Independence Temple and Adam-ondi-Ahman Temple.
