As you know, I have not giving thesealedportion.com the kind of attention
you have, because of the volume of red flags that came up on it for me.
Considering my respect for you and your search for truth, as one I would
consider a fellow remnant, the fact that you are so enamored with
thesealedportion.com has created a bit of a puzzlement to me.
I would like to offer what I consider to be a plausible reason that just
occurred to me in a flash.
You are demonstrating a principle that I have stated to people for some
time, namely that "a person with a good heart could find truth in anything,
including the church of the devil, and be brought closer to God by it."
Your experience with thesealedportion.com is most likely not a function of
an inherent goodness of thesealedportion.com, but your own soul -- as well
as Chris' soul, the author of thesealedportion.com
Despite his and your weaknesses, this experience of pondering and weighing
and defending and promoting -- all with the intent of tapping the highest
within you -- has had the effect of percolating the highest within you.
The experience has served as a catalyst for you. And that catalyst has much
more to do with your inherent make-up as a child of God and joint heir with
Christ than it does with the black and white words of print in
I would dare say that you could have probably engendered the same experience
with just about any text that you gave the same attention.
Now, with that principle in mind, I would now say that if you gave the
process the same left-brain attention, of scrutinizing it for how it
measures up as "truth," I would dare say that it would fall short -- indeed
any record would, if the left brain was the only thing being engaged.
The ideal, of course, is to use both the left (male / analytical) brain and
the right (female / heart / intuitive) harmoniously, in a balance.
Thesealedportion.com has served as a tool in your life to elevate you to a
higher spiritual plane because of the way you went about it.
Even the "worst" person on the planet is still a child of God, and has
within them the potential to eventually overcome all things -- though not in
this life, maybe another a long time from now. Each person has within them
that God essence.
Your approach to Christ has enable you to see past his flesh into that God
essence. What you have seen has caused you to marvel.
I would remind you that you would have the same experience with any human
being on this planet. If you gave them that kind of attention, you would
find within them "the sealed portion," no matter how depraved they are in
their present state of development, and in finding within them "the sealed
portion," the same would be evoked in you.
I've been sitting on a discovery that I made about a month ago that is very
pertinent here. I've not published it yet because I wanted to finish it.
I've only recorded the very first part of the discovery. There is a lot
more to it. [I finished the essence when composing this and have prepared it
to be published at the same time as this message.]
Briefly, there are 531 pages in the BofM, which is 1/3 of the entire record.
The "sealed portion" is 2/3. Combined, they make 3/3. I took 531 and
multiplied it by three, which is 1593, and then turned to the Bible (LDS
publication) to see what might be on page 1593.
It turns out that page 1590 is the very last page of the New Testament (page
1 is in Genesis). And page 1593 is a blank page, between the Bible and the
Nothing on it. Blank because the purpose of scripture is to get us to the
point where we are our own Urim and Thummim, communicating directly with
God. We are scripture. All things point to Christ. We no longer "need"
the written word of any cannon, for we have become the written word. That
is the fullness.
Your experience has engendered that principle in you. It has very little to
do with the "truthfulness" of thesealedportion.com You could have done the
same thing with the Jewish prayer book, or the Quran, or some New Age tome,
or Satan's handbook -- or even Leo Tolstay's "War and Peace." In other
words, anything. Some will be more effective instruments than others, but
an honest heart is the most important ingredient.
Seek and ye shall find. That is what you have found.

Subject: [bmsf.net] Personal Evaluation 3/3/05

March 3, 2005
To my dear friends and loved ones or to whom ever it may concern.
Having begun reading <thesealedportion.com> beginning November 2004 from
a download from the internet (roof top), I would like to share my
personal experience thus far.
In my research and study of The Sealed Portion I find, at this point,
nothing, which I would consider evil. Shocking, yes, but eye opening and
most likely truthful. In my study I have attempted to eliminate all
flesh in this research to concentrate solely upon the printed word from
beginning to end, and then beginning again more slowly and methodically
I feel that from these studies I have become more familiar and aware of
the true character and nature of the works of Satan. That in this
discovery, I have at this point in my life, and never before been able
to accomplish, together with the words in my personal prayers, i.e.
"Satan, I command they to get the behind me, and I do so by the power
and name of Jesus Christ, Ah-men", together I have put behind me what I
now know and consider sin, which has plagued me from my youth.
While I do consider these as minor sins, I feel victorious in this as
proof that the process, with the help of The Sealed Portion together
with my pure trust in my Father has and can take place in my life.
I actually feel that the process of removing ones self from Babylon or
the Babylon Lifestyle, is very real and possible. This, although an
infinitesimal stage for me, offers me a greater freedom than I have ever
experienced and in place of the sin, I feel greater love. Love of the
gift of mortality and all it has offered me.
While this, to me is very minor and it remains to be seen if I can
endure, it opens more of my pure trust in my Creator and myself, that
greater things are possible.
Nothing in my life to this point to include all religious experiences,
including what I have considered sacred, has come close to accomplishing
what my study of The Sealed Portion has thus far assisted me with in
I thank you, and using he same process I look forward to greater and
more meaningful conquests in my life.
I therefore consider this experience good and worthwhile in my life.
