The LDS/Mormon Church gives a statement amid Ukraine crisis, and a True Messenger responds.




Here is the official statement of the LDS/Mormon Church:


“We are heartbroken and deeply concerned by the armed conflict now raging. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has members in each of the affected areas and throughout the world. Our minds and hearts have been turned toward them and all our brothers and sisters.


"We continue to pray for peace. We know that enduring peace can be found through Jesus Christ. He can calm and comfort our souls even in the midst of terrible conflicts. He taught us to love God and our neighbors.


"We pray that this armed conflict will end quickly, that the controversies will end peacefully and that peace will prevail among nations and within our own hearts. We plead with world leaders to seek for such resolutions and peace.”


Here's a media link to the statement.


Really, Mormons!?


Really?


For a moment, please imagine that any one of the following Book of Mormon prophets is addressing the leaders of your church: Zenos and Zenock, Alma and Amulek, Abinadi, or Samuel the Lamanite.


NONE of these TRUE prophets, seers, and revelators were current leaders of the Jewish or Nephite Church of Jesus Christ when they were called and sent by the TRUE GOD to call the Church and its members to repentance.


OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE THE CHURCH WAS WICKED.


Yeah, the Church was praying, building temples and churches, administering to the priesthood ordinances as revealed in the Law of Moses. The members were paying tithing, abstaining from alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and drinking ancient Coca Cola ... the coca plants from which modern-day cocaine is derived are actually native to the Western Hemisphere. They did all their home teaching and fulfilled everything else that the Nephite Church leaders required of the general membership of the Church.


But on a side note, when Lehi's other son, Jacob, was sent to preach repentance to the members of the Church, because that was Jacob's calling, he did not mince words and was very clear that the members were committing "abominations before God" because of their desires for worldly things and the success that these things bring to a family.


And then Jacob hit them with even a "grosser crime" than the pursuit of material wealth and prosperity: wanting more than one wife. (See BOM, Jacob, chapter 2.)


And Folks, don't let the LDS/Mormon men deceive you by telling you, as well as their wives, that they would never want to live polygamy.


Bullshit!


LDS/Mormon doctrine clearly states that plural marriage is a celestial principle that will be part of Jesus' restored church after his Second Coming and during the millennium:


Mormon Doctrine states that,


"The holy practice will commence again after the Second Coming of the Son of Man and the ushering in of the millennium." (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1958; second edition, 1966), 578


Of course, the LDS leaders are going to say that the Lord is not unchangeable and can change His mind depending on what is happening on the earth at the time He has ONLY ONE MOUTHPIECE who gives His will to the people. Therefore, Bruce R. McConkie, because he is a dead prophet, seer, and revelator, doesn't speak for the Lord today.


Yeah, but, says one who is honestly trying to understand what the fudge is going on with the ever-changing and evolving Church of Jesus Christ, what's going to be the Lord's will when He comes again?


What will Jesus tell the people during his Second Coming?


"Well," states the current prophets, seers, and revelators of the LDS Church, "We will just have to wait and see. But for now, the Lord runs His church through us. If we do the will of the Lord in all things, we will be blessed. And because the Lord only speaks through us, who are His current appointed priesthood leaders, we will tell you what the will of the Lord is in all things. And for now, plural marriage is not one of these things."


TRUE MESSENGER: But all ya all prophets, seers, and revelators forget about the other "wickedness and abominations" that the BOM prophet, seer, and revelator Jacob pointed out to the members of the Church:


"And now behold, my brethren, this is the word which I declare unto you, that many of you have begun to search for gold, and for silver, and for all manner of precious ores, in the which this land, which is a land of promise unto you and to your seed, doth abound most plentifully.

"And the hand of providence hath smiled upon you most pleasingly, that you have obtained many riches; and because some of you have obtained more abundantly than that of your brethren ye are lifted up in the pride of your hearts, and wear stiff necks and high heads because of the costliness of your apparel, and persecute your brethren because ye suppose that ye are better than they.

"And now, my brethren, do ye suppose that God justifieth you in this thing? Behold, I say unto you, Nay. But he condemneth you, and if ye persist in these things his judgments must speedily come unto you.

"O that he would show you that he can pierce you, and with one glance of his eye he can smite you to the dust!

"O that he would rid you from this iniquity and abomination. And, O that ye would listen unto the word of his commands, and let not this pride of your hearts destroy your souls!

"Think of your brethren like unto yourselves, and be familiar with all and free with your substance, that they may be rich like unto you.

"But before ye seek for riches, seek ye for the kingdom of God.

"And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches, if ye seek them; and ye will seek them for the intent to do good—to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and the afflicted." (See BOM, Jacob 2:12-19.)


LDS CHURCH LEADERS: Brother Christopher. We know that you are angry with us, because you suppose that we deceive this people and do not the will of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon prophets are dead, and their counsel and teachings are no longer relevant to the current situation in our modern world.


You have spoken many negative things about the foundation of the destruction of our people, that it is being laid by our unrighteousness and the unrighteousness of our lawyers and judges.


But it is you who has come before the law of our land and before lawyers and judges and has been convicted and incarcerated. You have reviled against our lawyers, and our judges.


You have reviled against our laws which are just, and our wise lawyers whom we have selected as our District Attorneys and State's Attorney General. We elected these wise men to prosecute men like you who revile against the greatness of our laws and Constitution.


We are a law-abiding people and do not believe that the United States justice system is corrupt, nor do we believe that the foundation of the destruction of this people is beginning to be laid by the unrighteousness of our lawyers and our judges.


TRUE MESSENGER: I was quoting your own Book of Mormon at the part when Alma and Amulek were confronting the church and its members, all of whom thought that they were righteous and that their court system was good. (See BOM, Alma, chapter 10.)


LDS CHURCH LEADERS: As we have explained already, and have taught our people, that God reveals His will through His servants the prophets—modern-day, living prophets. This is why our church is called God's Only True and Living Church. What might have been the case during these ancient Book of Mormon times, is not the case today.


TRUE MESSENGER: So, what you're saying is that it is no longer a sin before God to seek after riches and material things as the ancient prophet, Jacob said in the Book of Mormon. Therefore, if it is not a sin, then the members of your church, as well as your church, are not currently sinning.


Your church is great example to the world of how the "hand of providence hath smiled upon you most pleasingly, that you have obtained many riches," which your god is now telling is not a sin.


But I say to you that these are still sins, and that your people, no matter how much they believe in the Son of God and His Second Coming, will not be saved in their sins. And I say unto you again that the Lord cannot save you in your sins; for I cannot deny his word, and he hath said that no unclean thing can inherit the kingdom of heaven; therefore, how can ye be saved, except ye inherit the kingdom of heaven? Therefore, ye cannot be saved in your sins.


Yeah, I just quoted your own Book of Mormon again. (See Alma, chapter 11.)


Amulek is very clear that he is quoting what God said to an ancient prophet, seer, and revelator about sin. These sins do not change over time, regardless of who claims to be one of God's holy prophets on the earth.


What was sin yesterday, is a sin today, and will be a sin forever and ever, IF the sin is actually something that an unchangeable eternal thing that God condemns as a violation of His commandments.


You are waiting upon your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to come again.


What is it that Jesus teaches, who, according to YOUR OWN SCRIPTURES, "is the very Eternal Father of heaven and of earth, and all things which in them are; he is the beginning and the end, the first and the last"? (BOM, Alma 11:39.)


You deceive the people of the world by changing the commandments that God has given, not through the corrupt religions of this world, of which your church is a prominent part, but the commandments that the Son of God, the very Eternal Father of heaven and of Earth, would give to people if he were alive among them.


When your Lord came to the Jews he taught them things. He taught them his commandments, all the commandments that he expected the Jews to follow and live by.


When this same Lord and Savior was resurrected and came again a SECOND TIME to the Western Hemisphere and taught the people of your Book of Mormon, Jesus did not vary from any of the teachings that he taught the Jews. But clearly told the people that,


"Behold, ye have heard the things which I taught before I ascended to my Father; therefore, whoso remembereth these sayings of mine and doeth them, him will I raise up at the last day." (BOM, 3 Nephi 15:1.)


YOUR CHURCH TEACHES NOTHING, AS THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD THAT LEAD TO SALVATION, THAT JESUS TAUGHT TO THE JEWS BEFORE HE ASCENDED TO HIS FATHER, WHICH WERE THE EXACT SAME THINGS THAT HE TAUGHT THE SECOND TIME HE CAME IN HIS GLORY AS A RESURRECTED BEING.


You can continue to deceive the world and the members of your church with what you claim to be modern-day revelation given to God's living prophets, seers, and revelators—ACCORDING TO YOU.


You can tell people that they must pay their tithing, listen to you as leaders, attend church, attend the temple and receive priesthood ordinances, to pray, to do their home teaching, to volunteer at doing what you pretend is good for the poor and the needy.


You can convince fools to follow you and believe that your are receiving insight, revelation, and inspiration from God as you pray to God, using the words of your mouth in addressing God.


BUT YOU WILL NEVER DECEIVE THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR TRUE MESSENGERS TO GIVE THEM THE FURTHER LIGHT AND KNOWLEDGE THAT THE FATHER HAS PROMISED TO HIS CHILDREN, EVEN THE LIGHT AND KNOWLEDGE THAT WILL CAUSE THEM TO BE RAISED UP AT THE LAST DAY.


A True Messenger, sent to the world by Elohim and Jehovah, WILL ALWAYS TEACH THE PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO WHAT JESUS TOLD THE JEWS BEFORE HE ASCENDED, WHICH ARE THE SAME THINGS THAT JESUS TAUGHT THE PEOPLE DURING HIS SECOND COMING TO THE BOOK OF MORMON PEOPLE.


A True Messenger will teach that the things that will bring salvation to the world have never changed, and never will. These things are the same teachings given by True Messengers yesterday, today, and will be the same things that True Messenger teach forever.


IF the people of this world would pay attention to the words that the Jewish Jesus taught the people, which are the same words that the Book of Mormon Jesus taught the people, which will be the EXACT SAME WORDS OF COUNSEL that Jesus would give to the world if he came a third time, THEY WOULD BE SAVED.


And if the world would simply do what Jesus told the Jews and the Nephites yesterday, which will be the things that he will teach the people if he were to come a third time as a resurrected God in his glory, THERE WOULD NOT BE A CRISIS IN UKRAINE.


But you deceptive and corrupt leaders, who have transfigured the word of God and turned the Book of Mormon and its lessons into an ancient "word of God" that is not relevant today ... I'll let Moroni tell you the rest:


O ye wicked and perverse and prideful people, why have ye built up churches and temples unto yourselves to get gain? Why have ye transfigured the Book of Mormon, that ye might bring damnation upon your souls? Behold, look ye unto the revelations of God; for behold, the time cometh at that day when all these things must be fulfilled.


But you do not believe in these "revelations of God" that came in times past, ancient times that you teach are not relevant to the the Lord's True and Living Church upon the earth.


You believe that YOU, as God's chosen leaders, are the ONLY ones who receive God's will for the people of this earth.


It is true that you ARE receiving inspiration and revelation from a god. But you do not receive ANYTHING from any god except the god of this world, as it has been revealed to you in your holy temple endowment presentation.


... Now back to the stories about these things as related in the Real Illuminati®'s Book of Mormon:


In spite of how righteous the leaders and members of these ancient churches thought they were, because of all the bounteous blessings of riches that were abundantly present in these churches ...


GOD STILL THOUGHT IT NECESSARY TO SEND A NON-MEMBER PROPHET TO THE CHURCH AND ITS LEADERS AND PREACH REPENTANCE TO THEM.


HAD THEY ACTUALLY BEEN A RIGHTEOUS CHURCH THAT WAS DOING THE TRUE GOD'S WILL, GOD WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO FIND AND CALL A NON-MEMBER PROPHET TO DO GOD'S WILL.


So, if the members of the Church are not doing the TRUE GOD's will, whose will are they doing? ... Well, I'll get to that below.


Lehi was a priesthood leader in the Jewish Church at Jerusalem around 600 b.c. Lehi was a High Priest who performed a role similar to that which a modern-day Apostle of the LDS/Mormon Church performs.


While Lehi was performing his labors for the Jewish Church, two non-members strolled into town by the names of Zenos and Zenock.


Lehi wrote about his experience with these two TRUE MESSENGERS.


Unfortunately, Lehi's version of the story was lost when the modern-day TRUE GOD of all humanity decided that the early European Christian Americans (n.k.a. Mormons, but who prefer to be called Latter-day Saints) couldn't handle Lehi's version of these events.


Instead, they have his son Nephi's version of the events:


For it came to pass in the commencement of the first year of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, (my father, Lehi, having dwelt at Jerusalem in all his days); and in that same year there came many prophets, prophesying unto the people that they must repent, or the great city Jerusalem must be destroyed. (BOM, 1 Nephi 1:4.)


When Lehi told his own story, he actually named two of the "many prophets" who came to Jerusalem at that time.


Again, their names were Zenos and Zenock.


Lehi's version of the events were written in what is known as the Lost 116-Page Manuscript of the Book of Mormon.


According to foolish Mormon lore, which the leaders of this wicked modern church pretend is the truth, God somehow allowed these 116 pages of original manuscript, written by Martin Harris, and a little by Emma Smith, to be "stolen."


But the Real Truth® tells the correct version of the events.


See Chapter 8 of the recently published book, A New American Scripture—How and Why the Real Illuminati® Created the Book of Mormon. You'll find all the sound evidence you need to know about what REALLY happened to Lehi's version of the events.


Or you can read the "lost" 116-page manuscript for yourself. (Here's a link.)


It was never really lost. God took it out of the narrative of the 1830 Book of Mormon so that the people would stumble because they couldn't handle the Real Truth® about why God's church in Jerusalem was so corrupt. (See BOM, Jacob 4:14.)


In Lehi's story, the modern LDS/Mormon Church is uncannily very similar to the Jewish church during the days of Lehi.


According to the story, many years later, after Lehi and his family were settled in the Western Hemisphere, the Church of God was established and became very prosperous under the direction of Zeniff, a righteous man who helped establish peace in the land.


After Zeniff died, his son, Noah, took over the government and the Church.


When the reign of Brigham Young is compared to the reign of King Noah, the similarities are again, uncanny.


Alma was a leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Ancient-day Saints under the leadership of King Noah. Alma was a High Priest who performed a role similar to that which a modern-day Apostle of the Church performs.


Because of how corrupt the Church was, because the people and their leaders thought of themselves as righteous people, God had to find a non-member to preach repentance to the Church.


What Abinadi said offended the people and the leaders of the Church. They bound Abinadi and took him before King Noah and boasted about how righteous the people and the Church were, and that "what great evil [have we done], or what great sins have [we] committed, that we should be condemned of God or judged by this man? ... We are guiltless ... therefore, this man has lied concerning [us], and he has prophesied in vain."


Just like the members of the LDS Church and its leaders today, the Nephites did not believe, nor could they be convinced that they were a wicked people.


Abinadi, who had to be convinced by an angel to fulfill his role as a True Messenger, told the people that they were not keeping the commandments of God properly as they had received them through the law of Moses. Abinadi preached that the Church was corrupt and that if the Church had kept the TRUE COMMANDMENTS, "the Lord the Lord would not have caused me to come forth and to prophesy evil concerning this people."


In spite of the law of Moses, Abinadi preached that Jesus Christ would come one day and teach the laws of salvation that would be required of the people in order to be saved; and that the people could not be saved by the law of Moses, or by any other law that Jesus himself did not teach.


LISTEN UP YE CORRUPT LDS CHURCH AND ITS LEADERS!


AGAIN, read what Jesus said AFTER he delivered these laws of salvation to the people:


"And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ended these sayings he cast his eyes round about on the multitude, and said unto them: Behold, ye have heard the things which I taught before I ascended to my Father; therefore, whoso remembereth these sayings of mine and doeth them, him will I raise up at the last day."


NONE OF THE LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS THAT THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS REQUIRES OF ITS MEMBERS WILL SAVE THEM ... ABSOLUTELY NONE!


Now let's talk about Samuel the Lamanite:


Nephi was the prophet, seer, and revelator of the Nephite Church of Jesus Christ. Nephi wasn't just one of the Twelve, he was the main dude for God in the Church at that time. Nephi was the President of the Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Ancient-day Saints.


And according to modern-day similarities in financial security and success, the Nephite Church was the wealthiest in that ancient world.


A TRUE MESSENGER was sent to this wicked, self-righteous church.


This TRUE MESSENGER's name was Samuel the Lamanite.


HAVE YOU LDS/MORMONS ... YE LATTER-DAY SAINTS ... read what these ancient prophets said to the people of God's church back then?


Of course not, you don't read the Book of Mormon do you?


You depend on the leaders of your church to pray for guidance from the god that leads them, that guides you, that walks besides you, and helps you find the way.


And what is this "way" that the leaders of your church help you find?


THEIR WAY.


THE WAY AND TRUTH IS WHAT YOUR LEADERS HAVE RECEIVED THROUGH INSPIRATION AND REVELATION FROM THE ONLY GOD THAT IS LISTENING TO THEIR PRAYERS, ANSWERING THEIR PRAYERS, AND LEADING YOU, GUIDING YOU, AND WALKING BESIDE YOU!


I don't know how many times as an appointed True Messenger I have pointed out to you that you should pay attention to YOUR temple endowment presentation ... You know, the one faithful members see all the time in your Holy Temples.



During the part that presents humans in the current mortal world, what entity is actually listening to and answering your prayers as you "continue to pray for peace."


According to YOUR OWN ENDOWMENT, LUCIFER, the god of this world, is the ONLY entity listening to your prayers and answering them.


Elohim and Jehovah HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MAN ADAM IN THE TELESTIAL WORLD.


Neither your Heavenly Father (Elohim) nor your Jesus Christ (Jehovah) have anything to do with what happens on this earth, according to YOUR ENDOWMENT.


These two entities, to whom you pray for peace, have sent TRUE MESSENGERS to this earth to teach you what you must do so that "enduring peace can be found through Jesus Christ."


WTF?


"He can calm and comfort our souls even in the midst of terrible conflicts"???


Yeah, your god and Jesus ... your own LUCIFER, THE GOD OF THIS WORLD ... might be calming and comforting YOUR souls in the midst of these terrible conflicts, but NOTHING IS BEING DONE BY YOU OR BY ANYONE ELSE to calm and comfort the souls of those who are actually going through these terrible conflicts.


WTF?


"He taught us to love God and our neighbors"?


Oh, right ... LOVE GOD.


AND WHO IS IT ON THIS EARTH THAT TELLS US WHO GOD IS AND HOW WE'RE SUPPOSED TO LOVE GOD?


Oh, right!


YOU LDS/MORMON LEADERS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE TELLING THE WORLD WHAT JESUS CHRIST TAUGHT.


But you don't teach what Jesus Christ taught, you hypocrites, scribes, pharisees and priests, who strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.


You "pray that this armed conflict will end quickly, that the controversies will end peacefully and that peace will prevail among nations and within our own hearts" ...


WTF?


Remember that your own temple endowment is teaching people that there is ONLY ONE GOD WHO IS LISTENING TO YOUR MORTAL PRAYERS AND GIVING YOUR RELIGIOUS LEADERS ANSWERS ... Lucifer, the god of this world!


Your leaders said, about the Ukraine crisis:


"We continue to pray for peace. We know that enduring peace can be found through Jesus Christ. He can calm and comfort our souls even in the midst of terrible conflicts. He taught us to love God and our neighbors.


"We pray that this armed conflict will end quickly, that the controversies will end peacefully and that peace will prevail among nations and within our own hearts. We plead with world leaders to seek for such resolutions and peace.”


YOU HYPOCRITICAL FOOLS!


WHY NOT TAKE THE WORDS THAT JESUS TAUGHT THE JEWS, WHICH ARE THE SAME WORDS THAT JESUS TAUGHT THE NEPHITES DURING HIS SECOND COMING, WHICH WILL BE THE SAME WORDS THAT JESUS WILL TEACH IF HE COMES AGAIN?


As the TRUE GOD's ONLY TRUE MESSENGER UPON THE EARTH, I told the people of Ukraine, and of the world, exactly what they should do.


I told them this:


Be meek and humble. For it is the meek who shall inherit the earth.


Hunger and thirst after righteousness, for you shall be comforted and filled with the Holy Ghost.


Be merciful, for those who are merciful shall obtain mercy.


Have a pure heart with a love towards all people, friend or enemy, and then you will see the TRUE GOD of humanity.


BECOME PEACEMAKERS, for then you can call yourselves children of God.


Don't worry about those who persecute you for being a nice person who doesn't get angry, call people fools, or who take to the streets in protests.


Don't worry about it if people revile against you on social media and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely.


Don't listen to your religious, political, or business leaders who tell you to love your family, friends, community, and country, and hate your enemy.


Behold, I say unto you, love the Russians, bless them that curse you, do good to the Russians and Separatists who hate you, and pray, not for yourselves, but for them who despitefully use you and persecute you.


Do these things so that we can be ONE WORLD and ONE FAMILY, even the children of your Father who is in heaven.


No matter what you've been told by the secret combinations of power and authority, by the opinions and propaganda given on social media, or on mainstream media,


I say unto you,


Love your fellow humans with a perfect love, even as your Father who is in heaven loves you with a perfect love.


Lay down weapons of war. Bury them deep within the earth.


No longer refer to yourselves by a family name, or by an ethnicity, race, gender, culture, or by any other thing that causes division and PRIDE.


Become the Anti-Russian-Ukrainian PEOPLE.


Stop listening to the god of this world.


Listen to me, a TRUE MESSENGER.


THE REAL ILLUMINATI® ARE THE TRUE GODS' TRUE MESSENGERS. I EXHORT YOU TO GIVE STRICT HEED TO THEIR COUNSEL AND TEACHINGS, AND THEY WILL LEAD YOU IN THE WAY OF LIFE AND SALVATION.


Their work is called a Marvelous Work and a Wonder®.


IT IS THE ONLY TRUE WORK OF THE FATHER, as they have presented it in their new American scripture:



"For the time cometh, saith the Lamb of God, that I will work a great and a marvelous work among the children of men; a work which shall be everlasting, either on the one hand or on the other—either to the convincing of them unto peace and life eternal, or unto the deliverance of them to the hardness of their hearts and the blindness of their minds unto their being brought down into captivity, and also into destruction, both temporally and spiritually, according to the captivity of the devil, of which I have spoken."



Dear Ukranian People ... and the rest of the people upon Earth,


IF you heed our words and do what we outlined above, peace will again be established in your land.


IF you do not, you will be brought down into captivity, and also into destruction, both temporally and emotionally.


It appears that you have made your choice.


The Russians are in the process of bringing you down into captivity, and also destruction.


What else can we do but warn you and turn you over to the hardness of your hearts and the blindness of your minds because of your PRIDE.


PRIDE is the "natural man, an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of humankind, and will be, forever and ever, unless you yield to the enticings of the Holy Spirit," which is the ONLY way you are going to be comforted.


NONE OF THE VAIN AND FOOLISH PRAYERS OF THE LDS/MORMON CHURCH WILL SAVE YOU!


ONLY ONE THING WILL SAVE YOU:


YOU MUST BECOME AS LITTLE CHILD, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon you, even as a child doth submit to his father.


You are presently being INFLICTED by the Father.


Submit to this present infliction in meekness, humility, patience, full of love and you will be saved and feel the comfort of your souls.


Do NOT listen to any religious leader, to any political leader, or to any business leader.


Listen to your heart.


Partake of the Tree of Life, which is the LOVE OF GOD ... the perfect love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things ... and the most joyous to the soul.

ALL RELIGIONS OF EVERY KIND ARE A PRODUCT OF HUMAN PRIDE, OF THE NATURAL MAN ...


OF LUCIFER—THE GOD OF THIS WORLD.


Very Sincerely Yours,


A True Messenger.
