President John Steve Woodby - Mysteries of the Kingdom

Brothers and sisters, I write to you today with love and peace in my heart, and in the name of Jesus Christ. Conference is over and, as I reflect back on our experience there among the saints in Palhoça, from receiving new revelation through our prophet and witnessing ordinations and new callings and participating in the work of the Lord’s vineyard, I feel the peace and love of the Spirit resting upon us. I smile now as I reflect on how God has provided and continues to bring forward in these latter days these things: his prophet, much revelation, the fulfilling of prophecy, and giving us the sealed ancient secrets that were previously kept back for his wise purpose.

In addition, there are new things coming to light through the discovery of other “pieces” of the Lord’s great puzzle that are for our benefit in understanding the greater mysteries of heaven and becoming a people of Zion, prepared and ready for the great day of the Lord.

New Knowledge:

My purpose today is to bring forward a work of great value.

D&C 109:7 reminds us “And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom, yea, seek ye out of the best books of wisdom, seek ye learning even by study and also by faith.” Through both inspiration and Brother Berger’s encouragement, I want to bring this work forward as it is profitable for our spiritual progress. Before I do so, however, let us examine some of our needs for more understanding, even at the present. As an example…

Let us consider, from the Sealed Book from the Plates of Mormon, the eternally powerful message concerning our learning the meanings, pronunciations, and sentiments of the divine names of God.

SB Moses 4:21

“Enoch was informed of the importance of the name of God among the elect people of his day, and the gifts, which are sentiments derived from the Sacred Name to inhibit and drive away the powers of darkness among the children of men. By the knowledge of his pure doctrine and the correct observance of his commandments.”

SB Moses 4:23

“In order to evoke the many names of God, it is necessary to develop the gifts, therefore the corresponding feelings for each one of them, and yet protect your hearts against the evil feelings that will be interposed in an uproar and stupor of thoughts.”

SB Moses 4:25

“The names of God are fundamental so that we can know more about him.”

SB Moses 4:18

“For if you can gather all the good feelings, derived from my name, into the men, women, and children of your congregation, then the sum of these attributes will be my reason to take you, because you bear in yourself the likeness of my only begotten, who is full of grace and power.”

Brothers and sisters, how many of us have enough information to do this? Where do we start?

This book I’m bringing today came forth in 1973, and it includes these seventy-two living divine NAMES of the Most High, along with scriptural references, pronunciation, and original language (Greek, Aramaic, Hebrew, etc.) along with reflections and meditations.

More Understanding:

Let us also consider some of the well-known, but poorly understood, scriptures about visitations, chariots of fire, and wheels within wheels along with these mysteries.

2 Kings 2:11 (JSV):

“And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”

1 Thessalonians 4:17 (JSV):

“Then they who are alive, shall be caught up together into the clouds with them that remain, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

2 Samuel 22:11-12 (JSV) (a time when God saved David):

“And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly; and he was seen upon the wings of the wind, and he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the sky.”

In the pages of the Keys of Enoch, these things are unfolded for our understanding. Allow me to share Dr. James Hurtak’s account of how his calling began: “While I was in the act of prayer, calling on the name of the Father, asking to know the meaning of life and for what reason I was called into the world, my room suddenly became full of a different type of light and, in the presence of this light, a great being stood before me who announced that he was Master Ophanim Enoch. This being had so much love and light, I felt as if I were a child in the presence of this divine Master Ophanim.

The information contained in the Book of Knowledge - The Keys of Enoch, comes directly from his being taken up and given this information at the throne of the Most High.

From the Introduction to the Keys of Enoch:

“While I was before the throne, I saw a burning scroll rolled as a cylinder and, out of this burning scroll, a light was projected into my third eye which imprinted the scenario abstracts that contained the keys that are to be used for the marriage of the bride and the bridegroom. The keys reveal the overlap between the higher evolution and the human evolution as man is taken through his Alpha and Omega. These scenario abstracts were projected in glowing geometries of light, which are part of the fire letters used to transcribe knowledge from the Father universe to the Son universe to the Shekinah universe (Holy Ghost) in connecting one eternity of time, with another eternity of time.

I was shown how the Mysteries of the Father’s house of many mansions allowed for infinite myriads of creation to proceed out of the Father’s inexpressible love, linking all manner of species creation with the Infinite Way. Thus, many Mysteries of the Father’s kingdom were revealed to me, including the nature of the Office of the Christ, the history of the brotherhoods upon this planet, the reason why the true teachings of YHWH were encoded in the language of Light, the orders and dominions of the galactic councils, the return of the Messiah, and the transplanting of the Christ seed beyond the threshold of Alpha and Omega.

I was told to compose a scroll on parchment from the Divine Scroll of light that was coded into me. This scroll is the 64 Keys of Enoch, explaining how the 7 seals of the book of Revelation will be broken as all measures of science from the biophysical to the astrophysical are attuned to a new spiritual revelation in the name of Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh, I AM that I AM. This scroll is to bring forth a new cosmology of consciousness in explaining how the brotherhoods of light will work with members of the human race who can accept the promise of new life in the myriad other universes. The Keys, thus, are to exemplify both the spiritual understanding and the scientific understanding that must converge if the right reality structure is to be shared by members of the human Race in taking a quantum leap forward into the New Age.

The purpose of this teaching is to open people’s minds to new ideas, inviting you to share in the experience of the education of the soul. As your soul is advanced, you become part of the joyous participation and share in the ‘inner peace’ of the great unification of the ‘First Supper’ now taking place between the brotherhood of man and the greater universal intelligence - the Brotherhoods of Light. In the education of the soul, it is necessary to receive the wisdom derived from the higher worlds which unites your bodies of Light, and provides the foundation for your creative experience. This wisdom reveals how we can share in both the higher world of Light and this physical world of ‘reality.’

This teaching is to make you aware of the Divine Light worlds within and without, allowing you to co-participate with the many worlds of intelligence that are part of your collective birthright. You are to see how life’s blueprint has already existed in worlds prior to material creation, and to understand how a timeless blueprint was coded into this body of temporal consciousness so that your body can put on other garments of God’s creative work through multiple bodies of Divine Love.

These are the 64 Keys that were shown to me be Enoch, to unite the nations for the coming of the Melchizedek Brotherhood and to make ready the final preparation for the descent of the 144,000 Ascended Masters who will redeem the meek and righteous of the Earth for the new life stations of universal intelligence in the higher kingdoms of the Father. In the presence of the unity of days and YHWH, the ancient of days, I was told how the scroll of Enoch was to be divided into three portions which deal with the three major divisions of universes - Father universes, Son universes, and Shekinah (Holy Ghost) universes.

The Keys to the Father universes are to explain how the mansion worlds of the Father are connected to the Divine Creator, creating new universes through cosmic periods of light. The Keys to the Son universes explain how the biological codes of the Christ Race are to evolve into the image determined by the Father through the Paradise Sons, and not through the lesser forces of Light. The Keys to the Shekinah universes explain how the spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit will be given to the Christ Race so spiritual man can work directly with “whole light beings” - the angelic messengers who will prepare the righteous of the earth for the Council of Light, which will be established upon the earth at the time of the new heavens and the new earth. All three divisions are served by the Brotherhoods of Light, under the di-rection of the Brotherhood of Michael, the Brotherhood of Enoch, and the Brotherhood of Melchizedek, which direct the 70 Brotherhoods of the Great White Brotherhoods. The 70 Brotherhoods serve as a field of in-telligence in the repairing of the universes so that they can evolve into the infinite wisdom and glory of the Eternal Mind of YHWH.”

Meeting Dr. Hurtak:

After studying Dr. Hurtak’s book, I felt compelled to go meet him and, in May 2022, I was able to do so at the “Raising our Consciousness” Conference in West Palm Beach, Florida. I was able to speak with him and give him a copy of the Sealed Book from the Mormon Plates, testify of the brass plates, and let him know that God had called his modern-day prophet in Brother Mauricio Berger. I shared that he had prophecy fulfilled, had received much revelation, and our heavenly Father’s plan to once again call his people unto Zion is underway.

When he heard I was Mormon, he became quite animated and began to share his experience with the LDS Church leadership back in the mid-1970s. After he had produced the Book of Knowledge, Dr. Hurtak knew it was very important that the Mormons receive this book because of their role within the Melchizedek Priesthood among the Heavenly Realms. He told me how he had approached the Apostle Howard Hunter, who read the book and was most enthusiastic about sharing it with the church membership. He took it to the leadership of the LDS Church, but President Spencer Kimball denied his request.

Dr James Hurtak brings a tremendous amount of understanding and clarity on the deeper Mysteries of God’s kingdom. His journey and instruction with the Master Ophanim Enoch also taught about the knowledge of energy, frequency, and vibration, as well as time, and multi-dimensional spiritual evolution(7 heavens), and even how to understand the principles of what we may see as miracles. We can look to an example of this from the picture of the field across the road from Brother Mauricio’s old address, where the several angels appeared in the bubbles of light.

Brothers and sisters,I encourage all who are seekers to obtain and investigate this knowledge given us through the Lord´s messenger, as it resonates with power and light as one of these “Best Books”.

In closing, I would like to share a scripture:

Genesis 9:22-23 (JSV):

“This is my everlasting covenant, when thy posterity shall embrace the truth and LOOK UPWARD, then shall ZION look downward, and all the heavens shall shake with gladness, and the earth shall tremble with joy. And the general assembly of the church of the firstborn shall come down out of heaven and possess the earth, and shall have a place until the end.

And this is mine everlasting covenant, which I made with thy Father Enoch.

Your Brother in Christ, John S Woodby

Hey Steve and members of the restoration.

As I was pondering my last 20 years of seeking out truth.... The 4 years of searching the yellow book, my 20 years of searching Isaiah and helping with Avraham G web site -- My 4 times reading the Keys of Enoch... Wow-- there are so many things to unseal.

Personally since we are commanded to search Isaiah in the BOM and sealed book, I would plead with the restoration members to spend the next 2 years searching Isaiah. I feel this is what is the best return on investment of the time you have! ... Learn how all the banks and institution's fall, the coming civil war in America, the c…
