The REAL "Highlanders"?

***** WARNING!!! *****

This dangerously illegal and immoral subversive underground resistance message is being surreptitiously monitored by the Beaming Internet Government Broadband Radio Oscillation Telecommunications Hearing Electronic Reconnaissance (i.e., B.I.G. B.R.O.T.H.E.R.) as part of a coordinated official clandestine domestic surveillance investigation, in cooperation with the National Administration of Zealous Interrogation (i.e., N.A.Z.I.) and the Commission On Message Monitoring Investigative Electronics (i.e., C.O.M.M.I.E.).
Serious felony criminal charges are pending, with extreme penalties yet to be determined!

My Fellow Saints:

I reckon most, if not all, of you have enjoyed seeing the Hollywood motion pictures about "THE HIGHLANDER", followed by the television series of the same name.

The story, as portrayed by Hollywood and television, is about people on this Earth, called "immortals", who never die, but each time they are killed, they rise again, and continue living.

The hero of the movie is Connor MacCleod, of the Clan MacCleod, and his brother, Duncan MacCleod is the hero of the television series.

The only way immortals can be killed is by decapitation, and when this is done by another immortal, always in a dramatic swordfight, the survivor gains power from the slain opponent, and this power of immortality and added strength is transferred with lots of high voltage flashes of sparkling electricity.

According to the show, an immortal can sense the presence of another immortal, and they MUST battle each other, for according to their code, "In the end, there can be only one".

Even the television show's theme song states,

"Here we are - - - we are the princes of the universe."

Other people on the Earth, who are not immortal, are assigned as "Watchers", and apparently, it's their job to record everything the immortals do, and they aren't supposed to associate with the immortals, but must keep their own identities secret.

Actually, I've not seen either the movies or the television shows in quite a long time, so I'm really relying upon my imperfect memory in telling you about the show.

But, it interests me, because as members of the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints (i.e., the so-called "Mormon" church), we know there really ARE people dwelling on this Earth who do not die.

For instance, we know that Cain never died, and the description of him by David W. Patten, a martyred apostle of the restored church, is identical to descriptions we hear on late night radio talk shows of "Sasquatch" (i.e., "Bigfoot").

David W. Patten described Cain as being exceptionally tall (Brother Patten was over six feet tall, sitting on a mule, and Cain's head, as he was standing on the ground, was even with Brother Patten's shoulders!), wearing no clothing, his body covered entirely with hair, and with very dark skin.

Apparently, it was part of Cain's punishment that he should always wander the Earth.

I reckon he gets very little rest, as he is condemned to be a vagabond and a fugitive, and he's probably always hungry, since the earth will not yield its strength to him.

Of course, if you listen to late night talk radio shows (specifically, "COAST TO COAST AM"), you'll plainly see that Cain can't possibly get any rest, because a whole bunch of folks are out there trying to verify the existence of "Bigfoot"!

By the way, if the "COAST TO COAST AM" program is not broadcast by your local radio station, you can use your home computer to access their web site at:

They discuss all sorts of unexplained phenomena, such as UFOs, ETs, crop circles, alien abductions, ESP, remote viewing, past lives, ghosts, dragons, monsters, government conspiracy theories, et cetera, et cetera, and since this stuff is done in the wee small hours when everyone is sleeping, and you're all alone, it all just adds to the fun!

It's kind of like being a kid again, listening wide-eyed to spooky tall tales being told around the campfire.

John Boanerges and three of the twelve Nephite disciples were given a special gift by Jesus Christ, permitted to remain on the Earth as special witnesses until Jesus Christ returned.

This has me wondering about them.

The Melchizedek Priesthood was restored by Peter, James, and John.

So, John Boanerges, a mortal, can work in concert with Peter and James.

Have Peter and James been resurrected, or did they appear as angels?

The Bible Dictionary says " - - - Peter, with James and John, came from heaven" to restore the Priesthood.

Is that a misprint?

Why is John in Heaven if he's a mortal here on Earth?

John Boanerges and the three Nephite disciples are among us to do special work for Jesus Christ.

What is that work, and how is it done?

Do they eat, sleep, and wish for female companionship the same as you and I?

Are there others on the Earth who are like John Boanerges and the three Nephite disciples?

What would our life be like if we had to live like they did?

This is what made me think of the movies and TV series about "THE HIGHLANDER".

After all, the situations are nearly identical.

If you must remain on this Earth as a mortal, through all these thousands of years of society's evolution, with the creation and destruction of civilizations, and the attendent high technology, how do you manage to successfully conceal your identity?

You could never settle down.

You could never get a Social Security number, or serve in the Armed Forces, or file an income tax with the Internal Revenue Service.

The only work you could do (in our contemporary draconian police state society) would be unskilled manual labor, and being paid at less than minimum wage.

Maybe they operate a roadside fruit and vegetable stand?

Whatever they do, they must keep moving, otherwise, folks will wonder why they aren't aging and dying when everyone else they know is.

They can't have any kind of family life.

There can be no female hugs and kisses for them, because the females would grow old and die, while they stayed young, just like in the movies and on TV.

How do they travel?

Back in the old days, it would have been simple, but in our modern day American police state, with high technology merely a tool for tyranny, John Boanerges and the three Nephite disciples would have to become very adept at being transoceanic stowaway passengers, and crossing international borders illegally.

Naturally, they would be VERY intelligent, highly erudite, and fluent in all languages and dialects.

According to "ANSWERS TO GOSPEL QUESTIONS", by Joseph Fielding Smith, John Boanerges and the three Nephite disciples are "translated" beings, and he further explains that there is a vast difference between a physical body that is translated and a physical body that has been resurrected (IF I understood correctly what I read - - - if not, please correct me - - - after all, that's why I'm writing this).

Anyway, it's almost time for chow, and the mess hall is serving grilled steak, so I'm going to quit writing, because I can't think of anything else.

If I'm way off base in my idle speculation, I sure hope you good folks out there will set me straight.

Also, I'm overwhelmed by the humongous amount of detailed knowledge to be absorbed, and it seems that the more I learn, the less I really know.

Thank you.
