April 2 – Authority to preach. Hebrews 5:4-10; “And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. 5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, THOU ART MY SON, TO DAY HAVE I BEGOTTEN THEE. 6 As he saith also in another place, THOU ART A PRIEST FOR EVER AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC. 7 Who in the day of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10 Called of God an high priest AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC.”
Continuing on with our series, Mormons would have you believe the above passage of scripture is how they obtained their authority to speak for God. When the Mormon asks where you got your authority, tell them you received it from the same place the disciples got theirs…Matthew 28:18-20.
“Point 5. The true church must claim divine authority. Heb. 5:4-10.”
