The Angels and God’s Glory

John 10:11; “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”

Circa BC 4

Herod the Great was living in Jericho when the magi paid him an unexpected visit asking where they could find the King of the Jews.

That visit was all it took to put Herod’s paranoia over the edge.

At the same time in Rome, Caesar Augustus was pretending he was the savior of the world. …

Meanwhile, the Messiah was given birth to in a little town called Bethlehem.

No fanfare from the locals, or national holidays called for. However, on the outskirts of town, God summoned a miraculous event to take place on the hillsides of Judea that neither Herod, nor Caesar, could reproduce if they tried. (more…)

Journal of Discourses 16:135-136 “We read that he went to his own native country, where he was born, among his neighbors and acquaintances on a certain occasion, and that he could not do many mighty miracles there because of their unbelief.

They would no doubt have told Jesus that because of the greatness of the unbelief in his own neighborhood and among his acquaintances he must perform some greater miracles among them than he did anywhere else.

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…)

October 28 –– His Kingdom Won’t Be Given To Others. Daniel 2:44,45; “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” (more…)
