My Very First Post on the Web in the Year 2000 (

22 I soon found, however, that my telling the story had excited a great deal of prejudice against me among professors of religion, and was the cause of great persecution, which continued to increase; and though I was an obscure boy, only between fourteen and fifteen years of age, and my circumstances in life such as to make a boy of no consequence in the world, yet men of high standing would take notice sufficient to excite the public mind against me, and create a bitter persecution; and this was common among all the sects--all united to persecute me. Joseph Smith; JS-H 1:22
The following is my very first post on arm, which was rejected by the then moderated, after which Elder Jong Kim then read and contacted me and was baptized here in the waters of the Gulf of California here in the Baja so. of San Felipe, after traveling across county on a Greyhound from Tennessee.
First Post:
With hat in hand, and with due deference to the intelligence of men, I, Art Bulla, would like to announce The Revelations of Jesus Christ, a volume of revelations from the God of Israel, to be had in full @ , but more specifically in answer to the question, "What Israel's God thinks of the Mormons", please see Section 2 which can be downloaded for free at, virus free, and again, no charge. I invite comments and objections and debate, which is expected, concerning my right, and the whys and wherefores, authority, etc to receive and deliver such to the children of men. I bring this to you in the spirit of humility and some trepidation, for when I received my first two written revelations a number of years ago, my hometeacher Randy O. attacked me in his apartment at Married Student Housing at the University of Utah, and broke my nose, and would have killed me outright had his wife not run into the room screaming, "Randy, Randy, What are you doing?" This spirit of fear is what Brigham Young stated was the cause of all persecution and is the very spirit that has caused the martydom of all the Lords servants in all ages of the world, and though blood was streaming down onto my white shirt and tie, having returned from a meeting earlier that day, I rejoiced and shouted for joy that I was accounted worthy to partake with the Lord of Glory that which he also suffered at the hands of the superstitious and over-righteous of mankind. Please have charity for me, for I come in the spirit of fellowship and a desire to do right. Take me on, but do so with intelligence and learning and I will respond likewise, for charity covereth a multitude of sins, does it not? I am not lying when I say also that at a High Council Court, held at night, that I was almost physically attacked again by two members of said court, and so I judge righteous judgment when I say that by their fruits ye shall know them. I end with a quote from George Q. Cannon, 1st Counselor to Brigham Young, who stated, "The people who have the truth are not afraid of any false doctrine or revelation. Secure in the knowledge that God is with them they can afford to let false doctrine have the freedom of action that God has given to every creature under heaven as long as it does not infringe upon the rights of his fellow man. The people who have the truth do not condescend to persecution, for if they condescend to persecution they cease to be the people of God." The Book of Mormon states twice and the Doctrine and Covenants once, that "Ye shall cast no one out of your meeting which are held before the world if he is earnestly seeking the Kingdom." I profess that I will repent if I can be shown my error, otherwise, here I stand, I cannot recant.
Art Bulla "All men are liars who say they are of the true Church without the revelations of Jesus Christ and the Priesthood of Melchizedek, which is after the order of the Son of God." Joseph Smith; TPJS p. 376
This post however was greeted in a far different manner by the vipers and cowards, Kevin Zoellner, but first Woody Brison with the greatest vituperation and slander imagineable. At that time they knew absolutely nothing about me for this post occurred in 2000, before I had any presence on the web. Therefore what motivates such slander? It is not information based, or based upon any knowledge whatsoever (except that I claimed the gift of revelation), but the spirit of the devil which rages in them to crucify the Lord afresh and put him to an open shame. This was predicted in the BOM at the advent of the One Mighty and Strong by the following passage in connection with the great and abominable Church:
18 But behold, that great and abominable church, the whore of all the earth, must tumble to the earth, and great must be the fall thereof.
19 For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish;
20 For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good.
21 And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well--and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.
22 And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none--and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance.
23 Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.
24 Therefore, wo be unto him that is at ease in Zion!
25 Wo be unto him that crieth: All is well!
26 Yea, wo be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost!
27 Yea, wo be unto him that saith: We have received, and we need no more!
28 And in fine, wo unto all those who tremble, and are angry because of the truth of God! For behold, he that is built upon the rock receiveth it with gladness; and he that is built upon a sandy foundation trembleth lest he shall fall.
29 Wo be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!
30 For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have.
31 Cursed is he that putteth his trust in man, or maketh flesh his arm, or shall hearken unto the precepts of men, save their precepts shall be given by the power of the Holy Ghost.
32 Wo be unto the Gentiles, saith the Lord God of Hosts! For notwithstanding I shall lengthen out mine arm unto them from day to day, they will deny me; nevertheless, I will be merciful unto them, saith the Lord God, if they will repent and come unto me; for mine arm is lengthened out all the day long, saith the Lord God of Hosts. (2 Ne 28:18-32)
Now one has to wonder, what is the operation on these vituperants which produces in them this bitter fruit? It is fear, saith the Lord. The cause of all persecution is fear. And what are they afraid of? "They tremble and are angry lest they shall fall" are the words of the BOM, the greatest anti-(cultural) Mormon book ever written. For the Lord saw your day and I, saith the Lord, revealed it to my servant Moroni in the day he read the sealed portion written by the hand of the Brother of Jared:
35 Behold, I speak unto you as if ye were present, and yet ye are not. But behold, Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me, and I know your doing.
36 And I know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; and there are none save a few only who do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hearts, unto the wearing of very fine apparel, unto envying, and strifes, and malice, and persecutions, and all manner of iniquities; and your churches, yea, even every one, have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts.
37 For behold, ye do love money, and your substance, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, more than ye love the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted.
38 O ye pollutions, ye hypocrites, ye teachers, who sell yourselves for that which will canker, why have ye polluted the holy church of God? Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ? Why do ye not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies--because of the praise of the world?
39 Why do ye adorn yourselves with that which hath no life, and yet suffer the hungry, and the needy, and the naked, and the sick and the afflicted to pass by you, and notice them not?
40 Yea, why do ye build up your secret abominations to get gain, and cause that widows should mourn before the Lord, and also orphans to mourn before the Lord, and also the blood of their fathers and their husbands to cry unto the Lord from the ground, for vengeance upon your heads?
41 Behold, the sword of vengeance hangeth over you; and the time soon cometh that he avengeth the blood of the saints upon you, for he will not suffer their cries any longer. (Morm 8:35-41)
For thus saith the Lord my people aforetime went down into Egypt and sojourned there. Now what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for naught? They that rule over them maketh my people to howl every day and my name is continually blasphemed. Therefore in that day they shall know my name, they shall know that it is I that doth speak, behold it is I. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion. Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean [thing]; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD. For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward. Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. And as many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
15 Behold, I say unto you, the redemption of Zion must needs come by power;
16 Therefore, I will raise up unto my people a man, who shall lead them like as Moses led the children of Israel.
17 For ye are the children of Israel, and of the seed of Abraham, and ye must needs be led out of bondage by power, and with a stretched-out arm.
18 And as your fathers were led at the first, even so shall the redemption of Zion be. (D&C 103:15-18)
Therefore these are just fulfilling prophecy. Jong humbled himself at that time and these gave way to fear and the devil took power over them to bring their souls down to destruction.
So judge my very first post. Now dear reader, read and judge for yourself whether it is I or them who are the "nutcases"?
The Gospel of salvation is perfectly calculated to cause division. It strikes at the root of the very existence of mankind in their wickedness, evil designs, passions, and wicked calculations. There is no evil among the human family, but at the foundation of which it strikes effectually, and comes in contact with every evil passion that rises in the heart of man. It is opposed to every evil practice of men, and consequently it disturbs them in the wicked courses they are pursuing.
When the Gospel which was preached by Jesus and His Apostles was preached to the children of Israel by Moses, it created the same effect among them. When he taught them to forsake their sins, to forsake every evil principle and practice of their lives, and turn to the Lord with all their hearts, it created such a division that Moses could not establish the Gospel among them, after all the kindness the Lord had shown towards them, though He brought them out of Egypt with a high hand, dividing the sea, causing the water to gush out of the rock to quench their thirst, manna to fall from heaven to satisfy their hunger, and quails to satisfy their desire for flesh. He also ordained that their clothing should not wax old, nor their shoes wear out for the space of forty years. They did not have to plough, to reap, or gather into barns, as we do. Notwithstanding this manifestation of the goodness of their God, he could not establish the Gospel among them, and was obliged to give them a law of carnal commandments. Why did not the Lord destroy them, seeing they were so very wicked? He did; and out of all who left Egypt, only two went into the land of Canaan-Joshua and Caleb. (Journal of Discourses, 26 vols., 1:, p.235-236)
The world entertain certain ideas concerning truth, they entertain certain ideas concerning God and concerning His servants, and when men come to them with something that conflicts with these ideas, they are led to reject them, and it is not until a man has died, not until in many instances his blood has been shed, that he is recognized as a Prophet of God. In fact it was an accusation of the Savior against the Jews that they garnished the tombs and sepulchres of the Prophets whom they had slain. They slew them, but after their death their children said, "If we had lived in their days we would not have slain the Prophets, we would have received their testimony," while they treated the Prophets in their midst the same as their fathers had done their predecessors. But it takes time to bring men to esteem Prophets. It has taken centuries to sanctify the memory of the Son of God; centuries have rolled on before He was recognized by the world as the being whom his disciples testified he was. To his generation he was a vile impostor, and was counted worthy of the most ignominious death that could be inflicted-to be crucified between two thieves. Why, they had the most irrefutable evidence, as they supposed, that He was not the Son of God. "Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?" "Why," said they, "art thou also of Galilee? Search and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no Prophet." He was a Galilean, and therefore, because of his lowly birth and surroundings, they deemed themselves perfectly justified in rejecting Him. And as has been quoted to-day, so confident were they that He was not the being whom He represented himself to be that they said, "His blood be on us and upon our children." They felt so secure in calling for his crucifixion, they were willing to incur al the penalties which might be inflicted upon themselves and their posterity for the death of a man who, in their estimation, was so vile an impostor.
(Journal of Discourses, 26 vols., 22:, p.178)
This is not a new thing in the earth, the antagonism between error and truth, between wrong and right, between the followers of him who seeks to usurp dominion upon the earth, and the followers of the Son of God. That antagonism has been a perpetual one, an undying one. It cost the blood of the best Being that ever trod the earth, even the Son of God Himself, and all His Apostles and all the prophets-they all, with few exceptions laid down their lives for the truth. And yet we talk about our civilization, the enlightened nineteenth century, and we say as did the generation in which the Savior lived: "If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have slain the Prophets, we would not have been guilty of shedding their blood." This was the cry of the generation in which the Savior lived, yet that same generation crucified Him in the most ignominious manner.
