Jeff Barnes – Book of Mormon/New Jerusalem Boundary Coordinates
My name is Jeff Barnes. By trade I am a Cadastral Mapper for Utah County Government… which is to say that for a living I determine precise boundary coordinates of tracts of land for tax assessments
I am also an avid researcher of Book of Mormon & New Jerusalem geography. Over the past few years, I have identified multiple “geographic” revelations of the Lord, which when joined together describe precise boundary coordinates for the sacred “land of promise” as revealed in the Book of Mormon and Doctrine & Covenants. Once applied, the results are both stunning and undeniable.
The coordinates point directly to one specific nation… a nation founded upon the covenant land of father Adam; upon the land promised to Joseph who was sold into Egypt; upon the prophetic land of the Book of Mormon and the holy land of the New Jerusalem.
This same land was considered sacred to my ancestors. From my Powhatan, Abenaki, Shawnee & Cherokee ancestry… to my Jewish, European and Royal Family Lines, this nation was viewed as “a shining beacon on a hill for all the world to see.” Many of my ancestors participated directly in the founding of this nation… as well as in the founding of this church
I owe it to my beloved ancestors… to speak on their behalf, if I may … to remind us all of the covenant land upon which we now live… upon which we have taken oaths, pledged our allegiance, called “our home” and buried our dead
From my great first cousin, “The Father of our Country” President George Washington… to my great grandmother and grandfather Pocahontas and father Chief Powhatan who helped save the new American colony at Jamestown, Virginia… to my great grandfather Chief Samoset who helped save the new American colony at Plymouth, Massachusetts… to the list of great grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles and cousins who arrived on the Mayflower and were present at “The First Thanksgiving” … to my great frontiersman uncle Daniel Boone who fought in the “Battle of Blue Licks” in the Revolutionary War and helped establish colonies throughout Kentucky… to my great uncle Sam Houston who fought under Andrew Jackson in “The War of 1812” & at “The Battle of the Alamo”, who also became the First President of the Republic of Texas… and to my great grandfather Reynolds Cahoon, missionary companion to Hyrum and Samuel Smith (brothers of the Prophet Joseph) and who helped construct the Kirtland and Nauvoo Temples.
(This research is dedicated to our loving Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ, to all those who lived, fought and died to protect this sacred “land of promise”, to my stalwart ancestors, my parents Rick & Lyne Barnes, my Uncle Wayne & Auntie Anne Boucher, my wife Laura Barnes Quevedo, our children and our loving extended family).
