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…)

December 9 – Jesus Rejected for “King” Joseph Smith. Zechariah 11:4-6c “Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; 5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not. 6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.”

John 19:13-15 “When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. 14 And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! 15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.”

December 6 – Did Polygamy Fulfill Light to Gentiles? Isaiah 42:1-9 “Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. 5 ¶ Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. 9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

Isaiah 40:25 “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.”

 [Original Posting 2016]

Earlier this month (August 2016) I was searching around for info on a speech by Melvin J. Ballard, when I came upon a  very interesting online publication called Mormonism Against Itself, written by a fellow by the name of Maurice Barnett.

The book was a compilation of dozens of Mormon documents that are now out of print, or hard to find. One of the items I read in Mr. Barnett’s compilation was a handout for a ward teacher’s lesson from 1922. While I am fully aware this sounds mundane, when you glance over this, one will discover how the Church knew no bounds when trying to pull the wool over the eyes of its followers. And surprisingly (or maybe not), they’re still banking on the same doctrines they did way back when.

They obviously felt no shame when referring to Joseph Smith as a redeemer, nor did they bother with publishing biblically sound materials. The content for their comparison of Jesus and Joseph was so outlandish, I’m still left without words to describe how awful it is!

  July 8 – Mormons believe Jesus’ grace is obedience to the Law. Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.”

 Mosiah 2:3 “And they also took of the firstlings of their flocks, that they might offer sacrifice and burnt offerings according to the law of Moses.”

Alma 10:3; “And Aminadi was a descendant of Nephi, who was the son of Lehi, who came out of the land of Jerusalem, who was a descendant of Manasseh, who was the son of Joseph who was sold into Egypt by the hands of his brethren.”

Mosiah 2, not to be confused with his father Mosiah 1, was supposedly a righteous, god-fearing Nephite who lived c. BC 124.

He is Risen He is Risen Indeed!

Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts. Isaiah 6:3

 The Resurrection of God’s Son

Acts 1:3 “To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God”.

The experiences a Christian typically has during Holy  Week is much different than a Mormon. Speaking from experience, the only day holding any significance is Easter itself. Their days are booked with obligatory weekly Priesthood and Relief Society meetings, and maybe a personal endowment session at their local temple.

Apart from these things, there aren’t any services devoted to observing events of Holy Week. And, depending on the year, a Mormon may not even go to church if General Conferences happens to fall on the same weekend.
