Reclaiming The Restoration: An Invitation to Every Latter Day Saint

Preserving the Restoration
One Year Update

It’s hard for me to believe that just one year ago I was re-baptized unto Christ in the Pacific Ocean.  It was during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.  I have not been the same since.

I want to tell you what has happened to me since that time.  A few weeks following my baptism I conversed with God the Father.  We had a conversation that lasted nearly an hour.  It was not face to face as with Moses (Exodus 33:11, Deuteronomy 34:10), yet the dialog was in both directions in complete sentences. (2 Nephi 31:3)  You can read about that here.  We have had other conversations since then too.  He continues to inform and direct my life. 

Also, I have had two visions.  The first took me nearly a year to understand why it was shown to me.  It was given in response to a question I had asked the Lord and He answered me visually.  I’m still working on understanding the second. 

Over the past year I have had the privilege of personally visiting with two different people that have visited with the Resurrected Christ.  Their experiences with Him are truly remarkable.  It is now their calling to testify of their experience with Him (3 Nephi 12:2).
These are the miracles that the Restoration was intended to produce.  We must connect to Christ individually for the salvation of our souls (Moroni 10:32).  No one can do it for you (2 Nephi 28:31). 

I have mentioned only a few of my dealings with God.  I share these experiences for your benefit, that you may know that God is alive and working miracles in the lives of His children, even those children who you think may not qualify for such things. I now ask you to judge for yourself if these are the Fruits of Christ or of Satan (Moroni 7:16-19).

This must seem incomprehensible to some of you. You say, “Brother May, you have resigned from the Church!  How can you possibly have these experiences?!  It must be of the Devil.”  Many in the Last Days will claim God has done His work and given His power to the Brethren! (
2 Nephi 28:5) Therefore all miracles are of the Devil (2 Nephi 28:6).  These same people also proclaim “all is well in Zion!” (2 Nephi 28:21).  

I testify to you that the Restoration as given by the Prophet Joseph Smith is now continuing, but not through an organized religion  Matthew 9:17.  I am working to preserve what Joseph has given.  I have been asked by God Himself to participate.  This is your invitation.  

I have been asked to include the following:

Reclaim the Restoration:

An Invitation to every Latter Day Saint

TODAY a monumental choice faces every Latter Day Saint. At the heart of this decision is whether to stand with Jesus Christ and His Gospel, as taught in scripture, or to capitulate to the corruption of a lost and deceived world. (Revelation 12:9).

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED about how the LDS Church is responding to a host of doctrinal, social, moral, financial, and political issues, and if you are willing to seek out and live a true fullness of the gospel, (D&C 20:9), then please know the light of the original Restoration remains available through prophecy, scripture, revelation, and the tutoring of the Holy Spirit. (Moroni 10:5).

A CAREFUL REVIEW of doctrine and the teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, reveals that many human errors have occurred during the past 185 years of church history. This spiritual tragedy highlights the essential need for every Latter Day Saint to now differentiate between eternal truth and religious tradition. (D&C 93:39).

THE BOOK OF MORMON specifically warns that when a culture becomes prideful, wealthy, and dependent on the arm of flesh,  (2 Nephi 4:34), that the fall of that particular people will soon follow. (Ether 2: 8-12). Scripture also confirms that in the last days the word of God will be “transfigured,” (Mormon 8:33), and that the once “Holy church of God” will become polluted. (Mormon 8:38). Sadly, today is also the day when the tares again “choke the wheat and drive the church into the wilderness of apostasy.” (D&C 86:1-3). Those honest enough to apply scripture to themselves, the Mormon culture, and the world at large, understand that we as a Gentile people are in the process of rejecting the fullness of the Gospel. (D&C 45:28-30).

REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE WORLD, and the world of religion chooses, let it be said: The hand of the Lord remains outstretched still! (Isaiah 5:25). At this time every Latter Day Saint is invited to re-learn and re-claim all that has been lost, abandoned, and distorted, since the death of the Prophet Joseph Smith. (D&C 43:10). In response to these deficits, a growing Remnant now shouts HOLY! HOLY! HOLY! is our God! For He is the Great Messiah! The Master of the storm, and the sure Rock in whom we will trust! He is THE CHRIST, who even at this very moment beckons unto all, “Come Unto Me” that you might receive the same truths, powers, ordinances, and priesthood, once offered to the early Saints. Thus, today is the day of choice:  God or man, Truth or tradition,    Zion or Babylon?                                                                                        

UNDER THE HAND OF GOD a great and marvelous work is now spreading across the land. This movement involves a broken and flawed “few,” (2 Nephi 28:14), who are actively committed to Preserving the Restoration, that Jesus Christ and His angels may yet ”gather the elect” (D&C 33:6), and establish a literal Zion upon the earth. (Moses 7:60-62).

FOREMOST IN THIS SPIRITUAL CRUSADE is an unyielding commitment to the Holy One of Israel and the process of receiving salvation in Him. There is no church to join, and no leader to follow. This "strange act" (D&C 101:94-95), is not the “apostasy” some imagine it to be. For in reality, the truth is never apostasy, and all that God commands is law. (3 Nephi 15:9, Romans 10:4).

LET IT BE KNOWN that except for our impending destruction, “the times of the Gentiles” is fulfilled. (D&C 45:26-30). The opportunity for us to repent and receive a true fullness will soon be forfeited. What follows will include mass destruction and great sorrow. (Matthew 24:6-35). This prophesied cleansing will begin upon the Lord’s house, first among those who profess to know His name, but have not known Him. (D&C 112:23-26). Thus, every Latter Day Saint who seeks Zion upon the earth, (D&C 45:68) and Celestial Glory in the eternities to come, (D&C 133:12, D&C 76:50-70) is now required to repent by differentiating between eternal truth and the false philosophies of men mingled with scripture. (2 Nephi 28:9-32)
THE LORD’S INVITATION is specifically for you. For even now, in this very moment, if you will listen to His voice, He will speak directly to your soul. Listen to your Savior. Listen to your soul.  Fear not, and go forward into the work of reclaiming the light of the Restoration. For now is the day of your salvation, and if you will follow Him, He will lead you into the fullness of Eternal Glory. (D&C 76:70). Come…come my friend, and through His grace, enter ye this day into the rest of the Lord. (Matthew 11:28, Moroni 7:3).
