August 21 – Stones Molten from Rocks. 1 Samuel 5:1, 6; “And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Eben-ezer unto Ashdod. 6 But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.”

July 19 – How did you become a child of God? Romans 8:15-16; “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God”.

Matthew 24:23-24; “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

In the ‘70’s members of the LDS Church were fed a steady diet of faith promoting idioms that were to be kept at the forefront of their memory banks. One of those promoted at that time was ‘lengthen your stride’, which meant ‘go on a mission’, and the other still alive and well in my personal memory bank: only Mormons were the ‘elect’ of God.

The idea was facilitated to boost a Mormon’s feelings of camaraderie amongst other Mormons, or so I was told. The downside? It served to instill a superiority complex. For many who leave the Church, the sudden reality of who they thought they were, and the Church’s history, is rather stark.

One of the startling realities is discovering all the unanswered prophecies proclaimed by none other than Joe Smith.

When Joe Smith and Oliver Cowdery finished translating their script in June 1829, the long list of messes they made would keep people busy for centuries to come. Case in point, us, and our subject matter today.

Did you know that Smith never did have a translation for the following five words in the BoM?

Romans 2:2; “But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.”

Ether 1:43; “And there will I bless thee and thy seed, and raise up unto me of thy seed, and of the seed of thy brother, and they who shall go with thee, a great nation. And there shall be none greater than the nation which I will raise up unto me of thy seed, upon all the face of the earth. And thus I will do unto thee because this long time ye have cried unto me.”

1 Peter 5:8; “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”.

I pray Peter’s warning will be on the forefront of every Christian’s heart. Imagine what would be if Smith’s converts had taken heed!

We’re looking at a verse in the Book of Mormon that sits out of place, and out of context. It serves as a sign for us to be vigilant, and to watch out for the false teachers roaming the earth.

3 Nephi 17:3-4 “Therefore, go ye unto your homes, and ponder upon the things which I have said, and ask of the Father, in my name, that ye may understand, and prepare your minds for the morrow, and I come unto you again. 4 But now I go unto the Father, and also to show myself unto the lost tribes of Israel, for they are not lost unto the Father, for he knoweth whither he hath taken them.”

Today we have a few questions about the opening scene in 3 Nephi 17. Although the rest of the chapter needs serious attention, it’ll have to wait for another day!

One of the hot topics in Joe Smith’s day consisted of rumors, and speculations of who the ‘Ten Lost Tribes’ might be, and where they resided at the end of the Revolutionary War era. The subject matter had waned and peaked in strength for over a thousand years.
