I thank everyone for their comments.
The (former) mormons (Jesus Christ Church of Latter Day Saints) in my experience look to J. Smith as a messenger or interpreter or bringer of God's words, and it was always my impression that to distinguish between that and "Manifestation" is simply wordplay. In my opinion and direct impression or implementation amongst his followers all these terms are the same.
Visiting an actual Mormon Church is quite an experience. I was allowed in by accident and met the Church Leader and his white-dressed minions. There is more hierarchy and rules of conduct one can actually SEE than in any religion except for Catholocisms (plural). BTW, I say actual Mormon Temple or Church because only Mormons are allowed in. Non-mormons have Mormon assemblies or meeting halls where non-mormons are allowed.
