Witness of the Above Ordinance – Tyler Crowell
“I am a witness from the land of Zion sent to Zion to the remnants of the church here to testify of the will of God for his people at this time to restructure his church that has been scattered and fallen into disarray.”
“The Lord has revealed from heaven his expressed will and plan in answer to the confusion and chaos we have created by following our own way. Just as there was one way of deliverance out of Egypt, the Lord is providing one way for our deliverance. We can accept that way and the deliverance of his hand or accept the consequences of our rejection of his deliverance. The state of everyone continuing to follow their own path is not an option that will result in our preservation. We must be united under one head to escape the devastation that is coming. The people of Zion have the opportunity to unite together to restructure his church according to his will, reinstating the lineal priesthood so the organization of apostles and prophets in their authority can return.”
“I am a witness of the designation on earth of Joseph F Smith, the fourth generation of the lineage of Joseph Smith Jr, as the successor to the office of prophet president, to take up this mantle that was laid down in the fourth generation, so it can be passed on again and continue with this lineage until the Lord returns. The Lord has revealed from heaven through the angel Moroni that Joseph F Smith is acceptable and is chosen by God, that he has remained in him so the promises can be fulfilled and the church can be rescued and organized according to the ancient pattern, so the Lord’s plan for Zion can continue and be accomplished.”
“Since the days when the church was scattered when Joseph was martyred, the lineal priesthood was sent to the reorganized church to preside in righteousness. The Lord has revealed his intention to restore this priesthood at this time to preside in righteousness, walking in the commandments of God so his church can be brought back to its original intended form.”
“Joseph F Smith has been told to first give the people of Zion the opportunity to accept his appointment so Zion can be built up, but if they reject him and his calling, the church will continue with another people who will accept the Lord’s appointment. Devastation is coming to the land of Zion upon the bodies of people who reject the Lord’s deliverance. In his mercy, to fulfill all righteousness, the Lord is giving one last opportunity to the people of Zion to accept their responsibility and his leadership before he brings judgement upon the land. When there is a common agreement among those who will hear his voice and accept his will, the restructuring will begin.”

Moroni’s Interpretation of The Prophecy of Joseph of Egypt given to Mauricio Berger.
Lehi quoted a prophecy of Joseph of Egypt while instructing his youngest son, whose
name was also Joseph. According to Moroni, none of the Restoration groups properly
understand it. In addition to Joseph of Egypt and Lehi’s son, Joseph, Moroni said that the portion of the Book of Mormon containing the prophecy foretells three other men whose name is Joseph.
The First of these three Joseph’s is foretold in these words:
“Yea, Joseph truly said, Thus saith the Lord unto me: A choice seer will I raise up out of the fruit of thy loins; and he shall be esteemed highly among the fruit of thy loins. And unto him will I give commandment, that he shall do a work for the fruit of thy loins, his brethren, which shall be of great worth unto them, even to the bringing of them to the knowledge of the covenants which I have made with thy fathers. And I will give unto him a commandment, that he shall do none other work save the work which I shall command him. And I will make him great in mine eyes: for he shall do my work. And he shall be great like unto Moses, whom I have said I would raise up unto you, to deliver my people, O house of Israel” (2N 2:11-15).
Moroni said that this choice seer was Joseph Smith, Jr.
Lehi continues with Joseph’s prophecy. It contains an second description of a seer.
“But a seer will I raise up out of the fruit of thy loins; and unto him will I give power to bring forth my word unto the seed of thy loins; and not to the bringing forth my word only, saith the Lord, but to the convincing them of my word, which shall have already gone forth among them. Wherefore, the fruit of thy loins shall write; and the fruit of the loins of Judah shall write; and that which shall be written by the fruit of thy loins, and also that which shall be written by the fruit of the loins of Judah, shall grow together, unto the confounding of false doctrines, and laying down of contentions, and establishing peace among the fruit of thy loins, and bringing them to the knowledge of their fathers in the latter days; and also to the knowledge of my covenants, saith the Lord. And out of weakness he shall be made strong, in that day when my work shall commence among all my people, unto the restoring thee, O house of Israel, saith the Lord. And thus prophesied Joseph, saying: Behold, that seer will the Lord bless; and they that seek to destroy him, shall be confounded: for this promise, of which I have obtained of the Lord, of the fruit of thy loins, shall be fulfilled. Behold, I am sure of the
fulfilling of this promise. And his name shall be called after me; and it shall be after the name of his father. And he shall be like unto me; for the thing which the Lord shall bring forth by his hand, by the power of the Lord shall bring my people unto salvation” (2N 2:17-30).
Moroni declared that this second seer is Joseph III.
Joseph’s prophecy also foretold the role of Moses, who led the Hebrews from
Egyptian captivity. According to the Inspired Version, Joseph’s revelation not only
identified Moses’ work, but it named his spokesman, who was Aaron (Gen 50:34-35 IV).
Lehi does not quote that portion of Joseph’s prophecy, but in its place repeats the promises that the Lord had made to him:
“Yea, thus prophesied Joseph, I am sure of this thing, even as I am sure of the promise of Moses: for the Lord hath said unto me, I will preserve thy seed for ever” (2N 2:31).
The promises that the Lord made with Lehi are an application and extension of Joseph’s prophecy about Moses. They describe a different Moses and his spokesman with much more detail that what Joseph revealed about the First Moses.
“The Lord hath said, I will raise up a Moses; and I will give power unto him in a rod; and I will give judgment unto him in writing. Yet I will not loose his tongue, that he shall speak much: for I will not make him mighty in speaking. But I will write unto him my law, by the finger of mine own hand; and I will make a spokesman for him. And the Lord said unto me also, I will raise up unto the fruit of thy loins: and I will make for him a spokesman. And I, behold, I will give unto him, that he shall write the writing of the fruit of thy loins, unto the fruit of thy loins; and the spokesman of thy loins shall declare it. And the words which he shall write, shall be the words which are expedient in my wisdom should go forth unto the fruit of thy loins. And it shall be as if the fruit of thy loins had cried unto them from the dust; for I know their faith. And they shall cry from the dust; yea, even repentance unto their brethren, even after many generations
have gone by them” (2N 2:32-40).
Moroni taught that the spokesman is a third Joseph who is a descendant of Joseph
Smith, Jr., the person who opened the fulness of time and was the father of the Restoration. He went on to say that this Joseph is Joseph F. Smith, the great-grandson of Joseph Smith, Jr. According to Moroni, he is the person who declares glad tidings to the descendants of his forefathers, who are bound by the divisions and contentions that have confused and immobilized the saints in America. This spokesman’s testimony about this Moses and the writings that he brings forth as he translates part of the sealed portion will reclaim Joseph’s descendants who remain perplexed almost 200 years after the Restoration broke forth.
Those who receive the spokesman’s declarations concerning the writings from the
translator of part of the sealed portion, the part that Lehi said would be expedient in the Lord’s wisdom to come forth through him, will rejoice. They will turn from their
bewildered and debilitated state, become unified as the Lord pours His righteousness on them, and build the house of the Lord, not only the spiritual house, the holy city, which we call Zion, but the physical House of the Lord, as appointed by Joseph Smith, Jr., on the spot that he consecrated. When that Temple is completed, Jesus will appear in the midst of His people, open the rest of the sealed potion, and read it to them in His House.
