Nothing is Random

September 10, 1973 – Denver Snuffer was baptized and became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

October 6, 1979 – The LDS Church, with no vote from its members, eliminated the office of the Presiding Patriarch. Eldred G. Smith, direct grandson of Hyrum Smith, was made emeritus. He had been equal in authority to the First Presidency and was responsible for ordaining the Church’s new “prophets” when they were called. It’s understood that the release was very upsetting to him and many others.

April 4, 2013 – Eldred G. Smith died at age 106. He was the last presiding patriarch of the LDS Church. He died on a Thursday night heading into General Conference weekend.

September 9, 2013 – Russell Nelson turned 89. Nelson was the President of the Strengthening the Church Members Committee and had been insisting that Denver Snuffer be excommunicated for having written a book called Passing the Heavenly Gift.

September 9, 2013 – Denver Snuffer’s Stake Presidency and High Council convened and decided to excommunicate Snuffer from the Church. Some argue as a gift to president Nelson from an aspiring stake president Truman Hunt.

September 10, 2013 – Denver began a one year speaking tour to show the Lord his gratitude for his conversion to the Gospel, among other good things. He received a call from Truman Hunt informing him of his excommunication as he was driving to his first speaking venue. Denver was an active and faithful member of the Church for 40 years to the day.

September 11, 2001 – The United States was attacked, buildings fall and grind its victims to powder and US leaders use the attack as an excuse to begin to destroy numerous constitutionally protected liberties. 9/11 is a symbol of the beginning of the end of the US and the gentiles.

September 11, 1857 – Mountain Meadows Massacre – One of the darkest days in Mormon history. It becomes a symbol of the Church’s decline and goes down in history as one of the greatest acts of mass murder in American history.

August 21, 2017 – Thomas Monson, President of LDS Church, turns 90… Monson dies 135 days later.

August 21, 2017 – Total Solar Eclipse, the first of two, approximately 7 years apart. The two pathways where totality was or will be observed will have made a huge X, crossing out the United States.

September 9, 2023 – Church president Russell Nelson turns 99.

September 10, 2023 – Denver Snuffer celebrates 50 years since his baptism.

September 11, 2023 – Russell Nelson falls. Apparently badly enough that the fall is kept secret from the public for 3 weeks. He did not attend General Conference this past weekend.

September 22, 1823 – Joseph is instructed to go to the Hill Comorah to receive the plates for the first time. He was not yet spiritually prepared to receive them.

September 22, 2023 – Wallace B. Smith, last grandson of Joseph Smith to lead the RLDS Church dies at age 94. 200 years to the day his great grandfather went to meet the angel to see the plates.

Today, October 6, 2023, John the Baptist’s birthday. A reminder that God sent an obscure servant to prepare the world for Christ’s first coming and to wrest the authority from the Jews, and they knew it not. And that God will send a Davidic servant in these last days to prepare the world for Christ’s second coming…

October 14, 2023, eight days from now, Utah and other states will witness the ring of fire solar eclipse.

It’s also interesting to note that according to Jewish tradition, a young male is circumcised on the 8th day. Ring of fire…

In 185 days from today we will witness the next total solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024.

I’m not sure what it all means, but I do think it’s all very worthwhile to consider.

Something New

Total Solar Eclipse as seen from the Sawtooth Mountains on August 21, 2017

One of the most memorable things our family participated in was the Solar Eclipse of 2017. It was truly amazing, mesmerizing, ominous, and somehow just felt very portentous of unknown things to come. The fact that it fell upon Thomas S. Monson’s 90th birthday also made it seem all the more important.

Thomas Monson died on January 2, 2018, just 134 days later and almost exactly on the first day of the New Year.

According to some astrologists, “If an eclipse falls on your birthday, or within five days of your birthday, the year that follows that particular birthday will be a critical one…”

Eclipses also represent the end of something old and the beginning of something new. (see source)

During an eclipse period, it is as though you will walk over a rickety old bridge. As you walk across this bridge, over a very deep, rugged, treacherous ravine, you may be a little nervous. Once you make it to the other side, the bridge will collapse and you will see the pieces fall far into the deep, perhaps making you jittery. The bridge snaps just as you get to safe ground, but you realize, first, that you could have been on that bridge when it fell (but you weren’t), and more importantly, you will never again be able to walk back over to the other side. Once we go through an eclipse, we can never go back to the former situation again, for the universe wants us to make progress, not go back to good old days. That option is taken away, forever. The only way with an eclipse is forward. If you find later you don’t like where you wind up, you can always have the option to make changes up ahead, but again, they must be future choices, not ones that bring you back to the past. The changes could happen instantly, but they also can occur over a period of months with each successive eclipse. Still, the news of those changes often comes as a shock.

Perhaps more ominous is that this particular eclipse from 2017 could only be seen in its totality from the NW United States to the SE of the United States. This was the “first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in nearly 100 years.” More ominous still, the next total solar eclipse will be 7 years from this last one, on April 8, 2024, and it will be seen in its totality from the NE to the SW of the United States, thus making a huge “X” going through the United States.

We all know that April 6th is an important date and that the month of April where the world celebrates Easter, Passover, Spring, and new life, is also significant.


If you look really closely at where the eclipses will intersect, you will find small lesser-known towns in Missouri, one of which is Cape Girardeau, interestingly, the birthplace of Rush Limbaugh, the undisputed voice of modern American conservatism who is battling stage 4 cancer. (This may be a complete irrelevant sidenote or it may be important — who knows.)


One thing is certain, the United States, during a 7 year period, will have experienced two amazing total solar eclipses that will make an “X” as if being crossed out, with its focal point being in Missouri along the banks of the Mississippi River, near perhaps the Garden of Eden and Valley of Adam Ondi Ahman, just downstream from Nauvoo and Carthage, Illinois. Coincidence? Or significant?

And the date of the first eclipse, for me, also seems to be trying to tell us something, being on the LDS Church president’s birthday. The end of one thing old, and the beginning of something new.

On September 3, 2017, just 13 days after the first solar eclipse, something new began. It was obscure and most people did not take notice nor were they aware. The LDS Church leadership was very aware, however.

The location of this obscure event was Boise, Idaho, where hundreds of people gathered to hear a man named Denver Snuffer speak. Brother Snuffer is an infamous excommunicated member of the LDS Church. He was excommunicated at the insistence of Russell M. Nelson, under the direction of President Thomas S. Monson. Denver was excommunicated 40 years to the day from the date he was baptized in the Atlantic Ocean on September 10, 1973.

I was blessed to be in attendance at this 2017 talk, where I believe something new and very important began.

I close with this man’s closing remarks at that event and I invite you the reader to ask yourself if any of what he said in that talk sounds like it may apply to current events we now all witness.

The Angel warned Joseph that the end times of the Gentiles was at a near-future date (after the fulness of the Gentiles) and that The Book of Mormon was a warning to us (the white Europeans) who inherited this Land of Promise, that we would be destroyed if we did not repent, just like the two civilizations from the Book of Mormon were destroyed.

I believe the day of the Gentile is coming to an end right before our eyes and that we will soon have NO nation on earth left to defend our freedoms and I think the eclipse is intended to be a warning and a testimony from Heaven.

Covenant of Christ Conference
Egyptian Theater
Boise, Idaho, September 3, 2017
Denver Snuffer, Jr.

That concludes all the work to be performed and all of the business. But I have a few remarks If I can impose on you for a few more moments before we finish up today. I was here in Idaho during the recent eclipse. We travelled to be near Lake Alturas, near Stanley in the zone of totality. At that spot totality was a little less than two minutes. During totality in a small lake adjacent to Alturas I performed a baptism. The one I
baptized might be here today.

We waded out in to the cold water beforehand and were trying to acclimate to the temperature of the water. At our spot the temperature dropped 20 degrees during totality. I observed as totality was approaching that it only takes one percent, certainly
no more than three percent, of the sun’s exposure to give absolutely, adequate light. But obscuring any significant portion of the sun affected heat at our location that day. Both of us were shivering for some time afterwards because of the water and the twenty
degree temperature drop.

Those who have entered faithfully into the covenant this day are going to notice some
things. The spirit of God is withdrawing from the world. Men are increasingly more angry without good cause. The hearts of men are waxing cold. There is increasing anger and resentment of gentiles. In political terms, it’s rejection of white privilege.

Language of scriptures gives a description of the events now underway and calls it the end of the times of the gentiles. This process with the spirit withdrawing, will end on this continent, as it did with two prior civilization in fratricidal and genocidal warfare. For the rest of the world, it will be as in the days of Noah in which, as that light becomes eclipsed, the coldness of men’s hearts is going to result in a constant scene of violence and bloodshed. The wicked will destroy the wicked.

The covenant, if it is kept, will prevent you from losing light and warmth of heart as the spirit now steadily recedes from the world. The time will come when you will be astonished at the gulf between the light and truth you will comprehend and the darkness of mind of the world.

Be charitable and patient and labor to reach others. They will judge you harshly, but nevertheless be kind to them. They are going to grow to fear you, but that’s only part of how darkness responds to light. Give them no reason to fear you. The time will come for us to gather, but between now and then, be leaven. Preserve the world. Be salt. Preserve the world, even if it hates you.

I hope for myself that when the time comes to gather I will have been proven faithful and to be among you.

May God bless you and send to each of you a growing light and warmth. As the spirit withdraws from the world may it continually shine uneclipsed on each of you to enlighten your minds and to warm your hearts. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. (Emphasis added)
