On Friday, June 2nd, 2017, something took place that the world did not notice, and many were caught completely unaware of what had happened. Something was organized by heaven here on earth that day, between those on earth and those in heaven. It was simple, no thrills, the passing of knowledge took place, and declarations were made concerning several things towards this end and the expounding of scriptures. It was personable and familiar.
The event that took place is perhaps the first of its kind in all the history of the world (at least that I am presently aware of). It was done in preparation for the coming forth of the Kingdom of God in all its rights, powers, and glories; while His kingdom is small, starting with just a few, as a small tree, it will grow to cover the whole earth. The messenger came and declared these things to me, and He also declared to me that “the words of Ezekiel are being fulfilled” and was shown the following passage of scripture by the messenger and was made to read it and was given understanding.
Thus saith the Lord God: I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a tender one and will plant it upon a high mountain and eminent; In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it; and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar; and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell. And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the Lord, have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish; I, the Lord, have spoken and have done it. (JST Ezekiel 17:22-24)
Thus, Ezekiel and other prophets’ words are in fulfillment concerning these things. That Babylon shall be overcome, and that the Lord did it, and that His kingdom henceforth will reign and that the fowls lodging themselves in the branches as spoken of by Paul and mentioned in Ezekiel, and as revealed by Joseph Smith Jr. are the angels. These men, these angels, are the fathers who are in heaven and are already beginning to come down and join together with their children who are here on earth, for these things are coming to pass this very hour and have all begun to be fulfilled. It will continue to roll forward until all things are brought together in one. The messenger had also shown to me the words of Joseph in an address to the Twelve Apostles in Iowa of 1839; a specific portion thereof was I shown:
“Paul spoke of the dispensation of the fulness of times when God would gather together all things in one &c, and those men to whom these Keys have been given will have to be there, and they without us cannot be made perfect. These men are in heaven, but their children are on earth. Their Bowels yearn over us. God sends down men; for this reason, Matt 13.41 and the Son of Man shall send forth his Angels &c. All these Authorative Characters will come down and join hand in hand in bringing about this work.
The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of Mustard seed; the Mustard seed is small but brings forth a large tree, and the Fowls lodge in the branches: The fowls are the Angels thus Angels come down combine together to gather their children and gather them. We cannot be made perfect without them, nor they without us, when these things are done the Son of Man will descend the Ancient of days sit— we may come to an innumerable company of angels, have communion with and receive instruction from them.” (sic) (Joseph Smith papers project: An address to the Twelve)
The event that took place, pertaining to the Kingdom of God, is in part what is meant by those who are in heaven coming down and joining together with their children here on earth, joining together with them, hand in hand, to bring about this work, who are under the branches in the shade thereof, the trunk and main branches being the Messiah and the tree His kingdom (family of God), the fruit thereof the Saviors on Mount Zion. And He shall do it, and the whole world will know it, for Babylon shall fall, and He alone will have overcome her.
God is with us; God is great – He is our Prophet, Priest, and King.
