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.

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.

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.
