Spies and False Prophets

ME!  Or....wanted-to-be-me
(From my journal this evening)

My dream job at one time was to be a spy for the CIA.

I didn't realize at the time that being a spy meant getting people to give you things they aren't supposed to, and getting people to do things they aren't supposed to, and at any cost - spiritually it would be pretty hazardous work.

But I wanted to be a spy.  By the time I felt like I was in a position to do it, my birthday for the closing application deadline was approaching annnnnnd.....I was too old.

I have ADHD, I wouldn't have passed the tests to be accepted anyways.  Once again, the Lord was looking out for me and blessed me with ADHD - something I absolutely hate - yet it plays such a role in shaping my life.

Not only that, I want to be able to tell my kids what I do for a living, tell them where I'm going - not live a life where my children could be the enemy and my wife as well.   No, that's no life to live - I am sure there is a Latter Day Saint somewhere who does do that but I do not believe that you can and be completing your spiritual mission in this life at no cost.

That being said, I would love to see what is at Area 51 and China Lake and all those other places.  I would love to see what we know we are really capable of.  I know from military experience that coverups are a part of military life - it is alllllll about control.  It is all about fear.  Money.  Politics.  Power. 

You know....those things Satan promises us.

But as I thought about it, there are things I know and have learned from the Lord, which as Paul says in Corinthians are "unspeakable" and "Not lawful for man to utter."  I have seen, experienced and been revealed things that no spy can tell me about the world to come.

And....that's the thing.  We live in an age of conspiracies.   When the media's as dishonest as ours is, of course you're going to get theories and conspiracies - they are as common as air it seems nowadays.  But...that's the problem, isn't it? 

These conspiracies masquerade as truth and enlightenment and....they aren't.

Secrets are not truth.  Man's works and secret works of darkness are not enlightenment.  To know the secret passcodes of the Gadianton Robbers does not get you closer to God nor make you more like him. 

Don't chase after them.
I'm here to tell you what REALLY happened...cuz I care...
 This is why I am wary of all the "truths" that are being sold and told on...well...pick a side, it doesn't matter.

They are all counterfeits.  They and their purveyors are false prophets who set themselves up as a light - having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. Alllll intended to convince you that their side is right, and that if you listen to them, you'll FINALLY get the GOOD things, be doing good and right, fighting the evil-galactic-whatever.

 But....Wanna know the real truth?  Follow President Monson.  Read your scriptures.  Attend the temple.  PRAY. 

There's only a few things we can take with us after this life anyways, and the secrets of our day are going to be made known anyways, but the things of God will only be known by those who obtain and seek them.

Do what you will, but that's....just me.
