Utopia ends where Human Nature begins.  Perhaps another way of expressing it is that Zion cannot exist where the natural man and woman reigns. Just as paradise was lost in the Garden of Eden as mankind partook of the seeds of Good and Evil, even so the Zion of Enoch fled as the evil fruit matured to fill the earth with violence. What once was lost can be regained, but not by climbing the ladders of the dead with their man made philosophies and institutions. The binding of the Watchers consists of connecting Heaven and Earth wherein the hearts of the people draw the heavens and the spirit of God to themselves.

If one were to ask the majority of Christians and Mormons as to the cause of evils of humanity, the most prominent answer given is "The Fall".  While the Fall of Man did have its repercussions, in the minds of the ancient Israel the cause of humanity's evil condition was the sin of The Watchers. This sentiment is preserved in the writings of Moses:

"And Adam and Eve blessed the name of God, and they made all things known unto their sons and their daughters.And Satan came among them, saying: I am also a son of God; and he commanded them, saying: Believe it not; and they believed it not, and they loved Satan more than God. And men began from that time forth to be carnal, sensual, and devilish." (Moses 5:12-13)

In the beginning Adam and Eve blessed the name of God by making known unto them all of the knowledge, wisdom, and commandments given to them to their children. Notice that it was the intervention of The Watchers (i.e. Satan) and their influence that caused men to become carnal, sensual, and devilish.  For us to "bless the name of God" we must also teach the same knowledge, wisdom, and commandments to our children.  In believing it not they became carnal (governed by the flesh), sensual (ruled by their emotions), and devilish (without law or becoming a law unto themselves).  If anything should be clear, the teachings and influence of the rebellious Watchers has repeatedly brought about suffering, rampant evil, and catastrophe as those who followed them sought to establish their dominion over the souls of men on this earth.  Think about these things for a moment:

1. Adam and Eve are seduced by a Watcher (Satan) and the result is the Fall.
2. The Watchers enter into a secret combination and the result is rampant evil resulting in the deluge of the Floods.
3. The continuing influence of the Watchers after the Flood leading to the establishment of Nimrod and his "Tower" leading to the Deluge of the Winds and mixing of the Nations.
4. The secret acts of the Watchers engaged in by the House of Israel resulted in the demise of their Kingdoms.
5. The secret combinations of the Watchers among the Jaredites resulting in their utter destruction.
6.. The secret combinations among the Nephites resulting in the destruction of their Nation through the rampant infection of the Gadianton Robbers.
7.  The secret combinations of the Watchers are among the Geniltes in the latter days wherein they are warned, "Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you...for it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning." (Ether 8:23,25)

The rises and falls among the various ages and civilizations on this earth can seem to be traced to one single source - the influence of the Rebellious Watchers and their disciples who seek to establish their dominion on this planet for gain.  In doing this they take the treasures of the earth, and with gold and silver they and their servants buy up armies and navies, false priests and political rulers who oppress, and tyrants who destroy, and reign with blood and horror on the earth!

The head of these watchers came to the Messiah himself offering him the same covenant and oath which they extend to all those who follow them:

"Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." (Matthew 4: 8-10)

What is often seen as just a "test" of the Messiah's strength and endurance was in reality an  inducement from these same Watchers designed to entangle the Messiah in the same secret combination that commenced in the first ages of mankind.  This legal exchange between the Messiah and Satan was witnessed by the Courts of Heaven and conducted under God's Eternal Covenant Law with each exchange being not only a counter argument but an overturning of the legal decrees that the Adversary used to subdue all mankind. With Messiah's victory against the Adversary on the high mountain, he then descends to deliver his most essential teachings.

With such a knowledge of the Laws of God's Kingdom that The Watchers use to bind the souls of men, it doesn't take one long to look about the condition of our modern societies to see their continued influence in the world today. The scenes of corruption in our policital, civil, and religious realms is almost overpowering.  The overwhelming manipulation of the kingdoms of this world and the extreme suffering we see results in the hearts of men failing and losing faith.

KADOSH -The Fifth Key To Binding The Watchers

The legacy of the Messiah is the legacy of Holiness (Kadosh). Kadosh in Hebrew means set apart or consecrated. It is in this legacy that we find eternal relationships, oneness with YHVH (God), justice, and healing.  These aspects of his legacy form the foundation stones of the City of Zion.

KADOSH, KADOSH, KADOSH (HOLY!, HOLY!, HOLY!) is the gift, tool, and condition given from Heaven designed to overturn the power of The Watchers, to release the gifts of God, to unleash the powers of Heaven, and to connect Heaven and Earth.  In Kadosh there is a great mystery to be revealed that enables an eathly Zion to establish the connection with Heaven- the Assembly of the First Born, The City of Enoch, and Messiah Himself.

Over the centuries many Christians have heard the powerful words spoken by the Messiah in his Sermon on the Mount.  In hearing these words many have not grasped or embraced the power of the words he delivered.  Rather, this sermon is often dismissed as being a philosophical "motivational speech" with an almost impossible decree of "Be Ye Therefore Perfect".  Unbeknownst to many, these words carry with them a deep and hidden teaching meant to instruct the listener in an ancient order and power hidden from the world but designed for those who would be Zion.

In Matthew 5:48, the Messiah is found to utter the command, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."  At first glance the command itself appears to be an almost insurmountable feat which would literally require the miraculous intervention of Heaven to enable us mere mortals to achieve this state of "Perfection".  Unfortunately, much is lost not only in translation but also in cultural and historical context.  It is in understanding the Israelite mystery of Kadosh or "Holiness" that God reveals to us an ancient teaching meant not only to bind the influence of the Watchers but to transform our lives and the world around us.

While many have debated over the meaning of the word "perfect" in this command they often fail to hear the Israelite echo wherein in God declared to Moses, "Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy." (Leviticus 19:2)  Here YHVH declares that we are to be Holy (Kadosh) even as he is Holy.   While the direct meaning of the word Kadosh means to be consecrated or set apart to YHVH for the accomplishment of a specific thing, the meaning this word is tied interwoven with the Patriach Enoch and his ascension into the Heavens.  The man Enoch and his city are the archetypes upon which Israel and Zion were to be established.  The Key to unleashing this enabling power is found in the words and teachings of Kadosh (Holy) from which we derive phrases such as Holiness to the Lord (YHVH). 

Looking past the Greek concept of "perfection" to the Israelite concept of Kadosh or Holiness allows us to throw off the man made yokes and heavy weights of the ideas of "perfection" that our religions and culture place upon us.  In truth there really is no equivalence between the Greek Mathematcial Perfection and the Israelite condition of Holiness except that both are meant to describe a condition of beauty (Tiphereth).  To be "Holy" while it does mean to be set apart to God for a specific purpose, it more accurately describes a state or condition of being that includes the presence of God with us in the here and now. It is tied to the concept and condition of being "Blessed".  

For example, if a person, place, or thing is consecrated, set apart, or made holy they then walk after a discipline and way of living as if everything they do whether it be work, play, ordinances, or brushing their teeth is all done as if they were in the presence of God.  They wake up and take a shower in the presence of God.  They do their daily jobs as if God were with them.  They eat their food and even procreate their children all as if it were done before the presence of God (YHVH). From the moments they arise to the time their spirits ascend into the heavenly realms of sleep, all is lived as if it were in the presence of God.  This state of Being is also what is referred to as Being "Blessed".


As stated before  To be "Holy"  describes a state or condition of being that implies the presence of God with us in the here and now.  The prophetic birth of the Messiah shares this message of holiness as Matthew declared, ""Look! The young woman will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means 'God is with us.'  The presence of the Messiah stands as a symbol of the physical presence of YHVH (God).  With the restoration of the presence of YHVH (God) comes the Ruach Elohiym (Holy Spirit/Ghost), purification and transformation, and the revelation of things too Great and Marvelous to be uttered by man.  In other words:


With that in mind now consider the words of the Messiah as part of his covenant declaration:

"2 And again, more blessed are they who shall believe in your words because that ye shall testify that ye have seen me, and that ye know that I am. Yea, blessed are they who shall believe in your words, and come down into the depths of humility and be baptized, for they shall be visited with fire and with the Holy Ghost, and shall receive a remission of their sins."

Modern Vernacular(Translation):  The presence of God is with those who believe in your words because of your testimony that you have seen me and know that I am.  Yes, the presence of God is with those who believe in your words, and come down and humble themselves by pledging their loyalty to me (Messiah) in baptism for they shall be visited with purifing judgment and the Ruach Elohiym (The spirit or essence of God) and shall be declared innocent of their rebellion.

Blessed [are] the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed [are] the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed [are] they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.
Blessed [are] those who hunger and thirst for righteousness:
for they shall be filled.
Blessed [are] the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed [are] the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.
Blessed [are] the peacemakers:
for they shall be called the children of God.  
Blessed [are] those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake/pursue righteousness:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Poor in Spirit = Meek

The word poor as used in Luke 4:18 is a quote from Isaiah 61:1.  The Hebrew word used is 'ânâv and means meek. In Hebraic thought "poor in spirit" means having nothing to offer God, and thus meek and humble, the opposite of  self-righteousness.  Numbers 12:3 uses the first of these to describe Moses as the meekest man on earth- there is no insinuation as to Moses' financial status or state of poverty.  Humility is action or discipline. It is not an outward act or performance of self-deprecation- “I am not worthy” cry, cry, cry. Humility was an active state of mind and being where the will of the servant has been yielded to the will of the Master. The perfect expression of being Poor in Spirit/Meek is found in the words of the Messiah, "Not my will but thy will be done".

We can also see another example of Meekness in Action with the Prophet Nephi:

"And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." (1 Nephi: 3-7)

To mourn = to hunger and thirst for righteousness

"Blessed are those that mourn", but how can mourning for the dead be a blessed state?  Mourning in the Psalms ( Psalms 119:136; 42:9; 43:2; 38:6) was often associated with grieving over personal sin, national sin, oppression from an enemy, over injustice, or over lack of respect for God's commandments. In this context the corresponding parallel in the Sermon at the Temple explains it perfectly, the mourners are "those who hunger and thirst for righteousness" for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost- the presence and mind of God.

We see an example of this type of mourning with Captain Moroni as he engages in the ritual of K’riah or the rending of his garments.  The ritual of the k'riah is often performed at a funeral in traditional Judaism.  It is an outward form of mourning that is reminiscent of a deeper stirring of the heart.

Captain Moroni's rending of his garments and is an act of mourning or hungering and thirsting after righteousness.

“11 And now it came to pass that when Moroni, who was the chief commander of the armies of the Nephites, had heard of these dissensions, he was angry with Amalickiah.

 12 And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole…

19 And when Moroni had said these words, he went forth among the people, waving the rent part of his garment in the air, that all might see the writing which he had written upon the rent part, and crying with a loud voice, saying:

 20 Behold, whosoever will maintain this title upon the land, let them come forth in the strength of the Lord, and enter into a covenant that they will maintain their rights, and their religion, that the Lord God may bless them.

 21 And it came to pass that when Moroni had proclaimed these words, behold, the people came running together with their armor girded about their loins, rending their garments in token, or as a covenant, that they would not forsake the Lord their God; or, in other words, if they should transgress the commandments of God, or fall into transgression, and be ashamed to take upon them the name of Christ, the Lord should rend them even as they had rent their garments.” (Moroni 46)

Here we see an example of Captain Moroni walking in the condition of Israelite Mourning and Hungering and Thirsting after Righteousness.  Notice his actions were in contrast to the secret combinations of the Gadianton Robbers (i.e. The disciples of the Watchers) and their attempt to bring the people under their unrighteous dominion.

Comforted = filled/satisfied

These mourners and 'hungerers' will be 'filled'. One meaning of filled', would be 'satisfied' as when justice is seen to be done, when the wicked no longer prosper and the righteous are not oppressed. 3 Nephi 12 makes an interesting addition, “for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost- Ruach Elohiym.  Righteous Judgment (the balance between justice and mercy) is done when the Holy Ghost or mind of God is in the person and among the people.

The title of God as comforter or El Shaddai is connected with the idea that God is the mighty nourishour or provider of nourishment. When God interacts with the Patriarchs as El Shaddai we see his hand as the great provider of sustenenance.  Again we see in the Book of Mormon the great providions God provides in his son and in the provision of his Heavenly Gifts:

and hear the words
which I shall tell you
for behold I am come
to declare unto you
the glad tidings of great joy
for YHVH has heard your prayers
and has judged of your righteousness
and has sent me to declare unto you
that you may rejoice
and that you may declare unto your people
that they may also be filled with joy
for behold the time comes
and is not far distant
that with power YHVH El Shaddai
who reigns
who was and is
from all eternity to all eternity s
shall come down from heaven
among the children of men
and shall dwell in a tabernacle of clay
and shall go forth among men working mighty miracles
such as healing the sick
raising the dead
causing the lame to walk
the blind to receive their sight
and the deaf to hear
and curing all manner of diseases
and he shall cast out demons
or the evil spirits
which dwell in the hearts of the children of men" (Vod vol 2, Compare to Mosiah 3)

The gifts of God are only given to enable one to fulfill the commandments and will of God.  As we take upon the name of his son, we embody the Messiah to the world.  As we establish his commandments, we are asking in the name of Messiah to fulfill his commandments. In doing so his great provision is manifest.

Merciful = pure in heart

True purity or beauty of heart is acheived when Justice and Judgment are balanced."Pure in heart" and "peacemakers" are both phrases that occur only here in the NT. The pure in heart according to Psalm 24:4 and Proverbs 20:9 are those without sin/rebellion or who engage in righteous or upright actions. The actual phrase "pure in heart" occurs also in Psalm 73:1, cf. Psalm 34:19, but comes primarily from Psalm 24:3-4 and is the key to connecting Heaven and Earth:

"Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully."

In Alma 42 the Prophet Alma demonstrates how the condition of Purity of Heart is created.  Notice that the Prophet Alma directly addresses the sins of the Watchers as they relate to the Fall of Man and Mankind becoming Carnal, Sensual, and Devilish:

Therefore, as they had become carnal, sensual, and devilish, by nature, this probationary state became a state for them to prepare; it became a preparatory state...

"And now the plan of mercy could not be brought about
except an atonement should be made
therefore Elohiym himself atones for the sins of the world
to bring about the plan of mercy
to appease the demands of justice
that Elohiym might be a perfect just Elohiym
and a merciful Elohiym also
now repentance could not come unto men
except there were a punishment
which also was eternal as the life of the soul should be
affixed opposite to the plan of happiness
which was as eternal also as the life of the soul
now how could a man repent
except he should sin
how could he sin
if there was no Torah
how could there be a Torah
except there was a punishment
now there was a punishment affixed
and a just Torah given
which brought remorse of conscience unto man
now if there was no Torah given
if a man murdered he should die
would he be afraid he would die
if he should murder
and also if there was no Torah given against sin
men would not be afraid to sin
and if there was no Torah given
if men sinned
what could justice do
or mercy either
for they would have no claim upon the creature
but there is a Torah given
and a punishment affixed
and a repentance granted
which repentance mercy claims
otherwise justice claims the creature
and executes the Torah
and the Torah inflicts the punishment
if not so the works of justice would be destroyed
and Elohiym would cease to be Elohiym
but Elohiym ceases not to be Elohiym
and mercy claimes the repentant
and mercy comes because of the atonement
and the atonement brings to pass the resurrection of the dead
and the resurrection of the dead brings back men into the presence of Elohiym
and thus they are restored into his presence
to be judged according to their works
according to the Torah and justice
for behold justice exercises all his demands
and also mercy claims all which is her own
and thus none but the truly repentant are saved

What do you suppose that mercy can rob justice
I say unto you
No not at all
if so Elohiym would cease to be Elohiym
and thus Elohiym brings about his great and eternal purposes
which were prepared from the foundation of the world
and thus comes about the salvation and the redemption of men
and also their destruction and misery
therefore O my son
whoever will come may come
and partake of the waters of life freely
and whoever will not come
the same is not compelled to come
but in the last day it shall be restored unto him
according to his deeds
if he has desired to do evil
and has not repented in his days
behold evil shall be done unto him
according to the restoration of Elohiym"

(Voices from the Dust Vol 2, Compare Alma 42: 10-28)

Peacemakers = persecuted/pursue righteousness

The “peacemakers” shall be called the “sons of God”.  Peace (Shalom) is a being at one with someone or in a covenant relationship with someone. The Hebrew underlying "son of” may also mean someone who acts according to the commandments, character, and attributes of person of which he is a son. Thus, a "son of peace" exhibits the commandments, character, and attributes of the author of the covenant.   He is a "son of God"with the image of God engraven in his countenance. Here God's character is that of a 'peacemaker' and the true disciple acts similarly and is called both a son of God and pursues peace-a condition of oneness with God/Christ.  The establishment of God's commandments leads to the condition of inner and outer peace.

In ancient Israel, we hear of the epic of War of the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness.  The Sons of Darkness were those men and women who walked in and carried out of the teachings of the Rebellious Watchers.  Just as the Sons of Darkness embodied the teachings of their father, so too do the Sons and Daughers of Light embody the teachings of their Father.  Here again, the Book of Mormon teaches us how to walk in the Paths of the Sons of Light:

"And now behold I ask of you
my brothers of the assembly have you spiritually been born of Elohiym
have you received his image in your countenances
have you experienced this mighty change in your hearts
do you exercise faith in the redemption of him who created you
do you look forward with an eye of faith
and view this mortal body raised in immortality
and this corruption raised in incorruption
to stand before Elohiym to be judged according to the deeds
which have been done in the mortal body
I say unto you can you imagine to yourselves
that you hear the voice of YHVH saying unto you
in that day

‘Come unto me you blessed
for behold your works have been the works
of righteousness upon the face of the earth’

Or do you imagine to yourselves that you can lie
unto YHVH in that day and say

‘Adonai our works have been righteous works
upon the face of the earth’

And that he will save you
or otherwise can you imagine yourselves
brought before the council of Elohiym with your souls filled
with guilt and remorse having a remembrance of all your guilt
yes a perfect remembrance of all your wickedness
yes a remembrance that you have set at defiance the mitzvot of Elohiym
I say unto you can you look up to Elohiym at that day
with a pure heart and clean hands
I say unto you can you look up having the image of Elohiym engraved
upon your countenances
I say unto you can you think of being saved
when you have yielded yourselves to become subjects to the evil one
I say unto you you will know at that day
that you cannot be saved for there can no man be saved
except his garments are washed white
yes his garments must be purified
until they are cleansed from all stain
through the blood of him of whom it has been spoken by our fathers
who should come to redeem his people from their sins
and now I ask of you my brothers
how will any of you feel if you shall stand
before the porch of Elohiym having your garments stained
with blood and all manner of filthiness
behold what will these things testify against you
behold will they not testify that you are murderers
yes and also that you are guilty of all manner of wickedness
behold my brothers do you suppose
that such an one can have a place to sit down
in the kingdom of Elohiym
with Avraham with Yitzchak and with Yacov
and also all the holy prophets  whose garments are cleansed
and are without blemish pure and white

I say unto you
No except you make our Creator a liar from the beginning
or suppose that he is a liar from the beginning
you cannot suppose that such can have place
in the kingdom of heaven
but they shall be cast out
for they are the children of the kingdom of the evil one" (Voices From the dust Vol 2, Compare to Alma 5)


Reminiscent to this day we find taught these same sacred principles Consecration/Kadosh/ or setting apart.  In that we make all things (AND ALL THINGS MEANS ALL THINGS FROM CHANGING DIAPERS TO GOING TO WORK TO OFFICIATING IN TEMPLES) HOLY OR Kadosh  in connection with the law of the gospel (Torah)  and the law of sacrifice (After the manner of Pattern of the Son).  It is in the walking in the footsteps of the Messiah that righteous dominion is established and a true Zion of the inward man and the outward city is built.
