Think Denver Snuffer Is a True Messenger?

In The Second Comforter, chapter 3 is explicitly titled "Keeping the Commandments". We find the very first paragraph, in whole, to be:

"Keeping Christ's commandments is not just incidental to the path back to Him. It is the path back. There is nothing optional about it."

Emphasis added for emphasis.

Chapter 14 in The Second Comforter is explicitly titled "Keeping the Commandments (Reprised)". "Reprised" means repeated - I looked it up. Lo and behold, we see the following - the very first paragraph therein:

If you have read this far, you must be actually interested in this process. You actually want practical help in receiving the Second Comforter. The discussion in this chapter is related to the gate for entry itself. What will most prepare you (or alternatively entitle you) to receive the Second Comforter is...

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

... keeping the commandments. It is not optional in the process. It is required. We have spoken about that already, but we need to return and reexamine the subject here, because anyone seeking this must return and reexamine their life on this same subject. What you have been doing so far has not been enough. What you need is to return to these fundamental, basic principles to relearn them for yourself. Relearn them in the context of actually applying the teachings in your daily, even hourly, life.

Emphasis added for emphasis. What he's saying here is you have to actually do what Jesus commanded and taught, and be found always doing it.

That's two chapters out of 20, or a tenth of the chapters, 10 whole percent of the chapters, or even a tithe of the chapters, if you will, of The Second Comforter explicitly devoted to a single topic. That single topic - keeping the commandments of Jesus - seems to be kinda important with respect to receiving the Second Comforter, according to Denver Snuffer.

It's interesting to see people acclaim one whom they esteem, on whatever grounds, as a true messenger, while entirely bypassing the crux of his message in silence, to say nothing of putting it into practice.

Ezekiel 33:30-32
“As for you, son of man, your people are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, saying to each other, ‘Come and hear the message that has come from the LORD.’ My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to hear your words, but they do not put them into practice. Their mouths speak of love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice."
