First Presidency releases 2018 Christmas message “Following is the 2018 First Presidency Christmas message, released Dec. 6 and signed by President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring:

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, offers to us four incomparable gifts — the capacity to love others, the ability to forgive, the blessing of repentance and the promise of life everlasting. … They were made possible because Jehovah condescended to come to earth as the baby Jesus. He was born of an immortal Father and a mortal mother. He was born in Bethlehem under the most humble of circumstances. His was the holy birth foreseen by prophets since the days of Adam. Jesus Christ is God’s transcendent gift — the gift of the Father to all of His children. (See John 3:16.) We joyfully celebrate His birth this Christmas season.”

“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” John 1:3

This was a week of inner reflection as America buried its 41st President, George HW Bush. The importance of who this man was couldn’t be missed in the regalia of numerous ceremonies honoring him, and the legacy he left behind.

Our prayers at the ministry this month is focused upon another man of much greater import we hope will capture the attention of every Mormon, and give pause as to Who He is in their own lives.

Jesus.

In Mormonism, descriptions of their Jesus are all over the board. They range from an imperfect, created polygamous brother of Satan, to a redeemer, albeit, without omnipotent power. Today we’re looking at what the Book of Mormon says about Him. Our list here is a partial one taken from an article we published several years ago, Jesus According to the Book of Mormon and the LDS Church.

The reason for this post today is to provide a concise go-to-list of LDS references you can use for witnessing to the Mormon in your life. There’s not much they can argue about because all references can be found right in the BoM they carry around with them every day.

As Dr. Walter Martin always said, ‘Use demonstrative evidence, not experiential reasoning, when you witness’. This isn’t a time for those goose-bump moments! To read the original list with 111 BoM and LDS references, click on the link provided above.

One thing we pray above all other things is for Christ Jesus to be glorified in all we do! We’ve also  included just a few biblical references denoting the greatness of Jesus you can share as you spend time with the Mormons. When we ran a Google search for bible verses on the greatness of Jesus, the shortest list we came across contained 217 references. You obviously won’t run out of things to share – God is good!

Let us know how we can pray for you, and those you witness to!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

It seems we’ve focused much of our attention here at Life After on Jesus as of late! For us, that’s a good thing, and we’re praying as we embark upon the busy ‘holiday season’, Mormons will take a step back and hit the pause button to reflect upon who He is to them, and equally as important, who the Bible says He is!

 

Today we’re going back to the basics. I received an e-mail from a dear friend asking me if I could provide links to the resources in one of our articles. Because this is so heavy with references, we decided to post this as our article for today – along with the updates. Thanks go out to S. for making this request!

Our article my friend requested is ‘The Jesus of Mormonism’, and it comes from our ‘Foundation of Mormonism’ series. Here we go! (more…)

November 25 — The Lamb on the Throne. Zechariah 2:10-13; “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. 13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.”

Revelation 5:136:921:24; “And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever. 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. 21:24  And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.” (more…)
