From the beginning of time Satan (Ahiah) has sought to extinguish the free will and choice of mankind and blind them to both the true identity and working of Christ through the representation of His Bride–the Church. The Church, representing the female creative aspects of God, being the spiritual birthing process for those who first chose, and second—are chosen. And although this Christ, being both the Sacrificial Lamb and the Scapegoat, will be the scorn and ridicule of the nations and rejected by the masses, still those who long for truth will hear truth and will be drawn from their slumber with gladness of heart and full resolve of spirit. Today, we live in a “copy and paste” world but TRUTH has been concealed and lost and there is no example to copy from—mandating a “refreshing”. Truth, therefore, will come “line upon line, precept upon precept”, as is the designed way of God—until all is made known.
This "work" that is spoken of throughout the pages of this website or written manual, is the prelude for the restoration of All Things and the restructuring of the Lord's Church on Earth at this time. This is the "refreshing" spoken of by Isaiah:
"For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing; yet they would not hear. But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken." Isaiah 28:11-13
And the "times of restitution of all things" spoken of in Acts:
"But those things, which God before had showed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you, whom ye have crucified; Whom the heavens must receive until the times of restitution of all things which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that Prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." Acts 3:18-26
God will "raise up a Moses" and the man for this time in history is Mauricio Artur Berger, who, being called and ordained by angels of God fulfills the scriptures prophesied:
“And the Lord hath said, I will raise up a Moses; and I will give power unto him in a rod;” 2 Nephi 2:32 RLDS or 2 Nephi 3:17 LDS
"And they said unto me, What meaneth the rod of iron which our father saw, that led to the tree? And I said unto them, that it was the word of God; and whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish; Neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary, overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction. Wherefore, I, Nephi, did exhort them to give heed unto the word of the Lord; Yea, I did exhort them with all the energies of my soul, and with all the faculty which I possessed, that they would give heed to the word of God, and remember to keep his commandments always, in all things." 1 Nephi 4:38-42 RLDS or 1 Nephi 15:23-25 LDS
Moroni delivered the golden plates of the Book of Mormon to the Prophet Mauricio Berger. Yes, the self same plates being delivered to Joseph Smith, Jr at the opening of the dispensation of the fullness of times. Upon the swelling of the plates now known as the "Sealed Book of Mormon" and under command of the Holy Spirit, Mauricio Berger was instructed to break the seals of those specific plates. Having also been delivered the "seer stones", Mauricio was instructed to begin translating the "Sealed Book of Mormon", which he did in 2018. According to the words of Jesus Christ through Moroni to Mauricio Berger and three other men, the "Sealed Book of Mormon" will reveal the will of the Savior and His work in these Last Days. While translating, Mauricio was instructed--at a specific point--that the translation work to be given to "Zion" was completed at that time. This “first part”, according to Moroni, would serve as a test of faith and obedience for all of those to whom this work is given. Moroni further stated that this “first part” (which we now have) is enough for the redemption of Zion. It was further made known that this part of the "Sealed Book of Mormon" is for those who now keep the commandments of the church which are within the standards of scriptures for the Church restored first through Joseph Smith Jr. And finally, Moroni indicated that if the Saints in "Zion" do not respond as required then the remainder of the "Sealed Book of Mormon" will go forth not from "Zion", but from Brazil.
Mauricio Berger also fulfills the prophecy which shows that God would designate another, in the place of Joseph Smith Jr, to receive the keys of His mysteries and the revelations that are sealed.
“For I have given him the keys of the mysteries, and the revelations which are sealed, until I shall appoint unto them another in his stead.” D&C 27: 2d RLDS or D&C 28: 7 LDS
Again, according to the words of Jesus Christ (spoken through Moroni to the Prophet Mauricio A Berger and three others) this work is to restore the true authority of Priesthood and the pristine principals and ordinances of the gospel, to the Church.
"Therefore, in the ordinances thereof the power of godliness is manifest; and without the ordinances thereof, and the authority of the priesthood, the power of godliness is not manifest unto men in the flesh; for without this, no man can see the face of God, even the Father, and live." D&C 83:2c RLDS
According to the words of Jesus Christ through his messenger Moroni, the Melchesidec priesthood began to be corrupted in the second generation from Joseph Smith Jr. Therefore, there were currently no true Prophets or Apostles in any branch of the churches of the restoration which came through the Prophet and Seer, Joseph Smith Jr. Again, according to the messenger Moroni, Joseph Fredrick Smith retained the right and authority of and through the lineal priesthood, as a seed of Joseph Smith Jr. and as such was to baptize and ordain Mauricio Berger to the Melchiesdec priesthood and others with him. In October of 2017 Joseph traveled to Brazil where he did baptize numerous people and, after receiving the revelation of the priesthood callings of Mauricio, Valdeci and Joni, he did ordain them. The office of High Priest was later confirmed upon the head of Mauricio Berger and was given all of the corresponding keys necessary for this work, by Moroni. Thereafter, in August of 2018, Mauricio ordained two others, Joni Batista and Valdeci Machado to High Priests after the order of the Son of God and by special command of God.
In October 2018, Joseph F Smith (being the great grandson of Joseph Smith Jr) was ordained as a High Priest and called and set apart, under the direction and hands of Mauricio Berger, to serve as a president in the Quorom of Presidents. Joseph was further, in a revelation given through Mauricio Berger whose hands were upon his head, likened to Hyrum Smith, being under the leadership of Joseph Smith Jr. The author of this article being a witness to that ordination and revelation.
Under the direction of Jesus Christ through Moroni, Mauricio Berger is to establish the School of Prophets, eventually in all quadrants of the earth. Through this School of Prophets, and under the direction of Mauricio Berger, the elect who attend will receive the training and preparation by the Holy Spirit through which the order of all things will be restored.
And---the Lord will raise up after him "ONE mighty and strong" who will have the scepter of power in his hands, being clothed upon with light, a covering of knowledge coming from this order and whose mouth will speak truth to the people of His Church in the last days the words of His eternal covenant.
"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." 2 Nephi 3:13 LDS or 2 Nephi 2:24 RLDS
"And there shall raise up one mighty among them, who shall do much good, both in word and in deed, being an instrument in the hands of God, with exceeding faith." 2 Nephi 3:24 LDS or 2 Nephi 2:46 RLDS
"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.” 2 Nephi 2:17-18 RLDS or 2 Nephi 3:11 LDS
When "refreshed" or washed from impurities these principles and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ along with the true Priesthood, will infuse the elect of the Church of Jesus Christ with the "power of godliness" through which the entire family of God will be blessed and will come to the United Order. The Savior also instructs that these elect must vanquish all pride and vanity becoming true servants of God who will live to serve and not be served.
This work, therefore, does not supplant the work of the restoration of the Church through the Prophet Joseph Smith Jr. This work will bring the Church of Jesus Christ, the Bride, more fully out of the wilderness so that she may step forward--in purity and grace with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit--toward her Bridegroom and Savior, Jesus Christ. This work is not come to bring unity among all the people of the earth. It will raise up an elect people led by the direction of the Lord Jesus Christ and will divide asunder the wheat and the chaff, the sheep and the goats. This work is not to tear down the foundations set by the Prophet Joseph Smith Jr. This work is to uncover the foundations and purify them and build upon them! This work will not haphazardly throw up the walls (or gates) of the tabernacle of the Lord but they will be built with a plummet and a straight edge and upon the sure foundation and the chief cornerstone, first building spiritually then temporally. This work is not to destroy the principles and doctrine of the Church restored in 1830, but to straighten the gate--the lawgiver and the law--through which the Saints of God may find eternal life and happiness.
"And he said unto his servant: When I will; go ye straightway, and do all things whatsoever I have commanded you; And this shall be my seal and blessing upon you—a faithful and wise steward in the midst of mine house, a ruler in my kingdom. And his servant went straightway, and did all things whatsoever his lord commanded him; and after many days all things were fulfilled. Again, verily I say unto you, I will show unto you wisdom in me concerning all the churches, inasmuch as they are willing to be guided in a right and proper way for their salvation, that the work of the gathering together of my saints may continue, that I may build them up unto my name upon holy places; for the time of harvest is come, and my word must needs be fulfilled. Therefore, I must gather together my people, according to the parable of the wheat and the tares, that the wheat may be secured in the garners to possess eternal life, and be crowned with celestial glory, when I shall come in the kingdom of my Father to reward every man according as his work shall be; While the tares shall be bound in bundles, and their bands made strong, that they may be burned with unquenchable fire. Therefore, a commandment I give unto all the churches, that they shall continue to gather together unto the places which I have appointed." D&C 98:8b-9d RLDS or D&C 101:60-67 LDS
"And after that cometh the day of my power; then shall the poor, the lame, and the blind, and the deaf, come in unto the marriage of the Lamb, and partake of the supper of the Lord, prepared for the great day to come. Behold, I, the Lord, have spoken it. And that the testimony might go forth from Zion, yea, from the mouth of the city of the heritage of God" D&C 58:3e-4a RLDS or D&C 58:11-13 LDS
This work is the "refreshing" of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in these last days brought first through Joseph Smith Jr and comes again through Mauricio Berger. This website will post truth irrespective of its conduit. "All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it, to act for itself, as all intelligence also, otherwise there is no existence" D&C 90:5b RLDS or D&C 93:30 LDS. Therefore, postings on this website should be viewed as the endorsement of truth—speaking generally and not specifically for each word, action, person or organization. "And righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine own elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare; an holy city, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion; a New Jerusalem." Genesis 7:70
