Psalm 51:2 “Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.”

Hosanna and Hallelujah—The Living Jesus Christ: The Heart of Restoration and Easter  “Let us also briefly recall what Passover signifies. … The final plague threatened the death of the firstborn in the land but not in the house of Israel if—if those households put the blood of an unblemished firstling lamb on the lintels of their doors…The angel of death passed by the houses marked with the symbolic blood of the lamb. That passing by, or pass over, represents Jesus Christ ultimately overcoming death. Indeed, the atoning blood of the Lamb of God gives our Good Shepherd power to gather His people in all places and circumstances into the safety of His fold on both sides of the veil.” — Gerrit Gong [emp. added] (more…)

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

 Yesterday I received an e-mail from Melissa that made me grateful I was sitting down. She came across a pro-Mormon Facebook page that screams false prophet, reminding us of the inherent dangers of Mormonism.

The FB page had a caption of an Israelite painting blood over a doorpost, followed by Nelson’s blasphemous declaration – (more…)

January 23 – Why Mormons Pass Over God’s Passover Miracle. Exodus 12:21-27 “Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. 22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. 23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. 24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. 25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service. 26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? 27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’s passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.”

1 Corinthians 5;7 “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.”

  Luke 22:7-13; “Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. 8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. 9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? 10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. 11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? 12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.”

Today we’re finishing up our look at the significant items used during Holy Week on Maundy Thursday by examining the meaning of Communion and the price of Judas’ betrayal.

First and foremost, we pray Mormons will come to know the significance and meaning of Maundy Thursday in its fullest sense.

Maundy is the Latin word for command. Jesus’ simple command was for His disciples to love and serve one another. We see His example of this in the washing of the disciples’ feet, and His sweet love for mankind by giving His life.

If  you’re LDS, we want  you to know…Jesus died for you wholly, and without exception. There’s nothing you’ve done that would prevent Him from providing a total and complete salvation. Likewise, there’s nothing you could do to pay the price for salvation. The price needed for a full salvation is out of your league. Only Jesus can afford that price!

For more info on the details of Jesus’ activities for this, and other days in Holy Week see Easter and Holy Week.

 A Fig Tree and A Den of Thieves

Holy Week01Mark 11:12-14; “And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his disciples heard it.”

 A Fig Tree and A Den of Thieves

Mark 11:12-14; “And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his disciples heard it.”

In what is known today as the West Bank, Jesus spent the night with His friends Lazarus, Mary and Martha in Bethany. Being relatively close to Jerusalem, the next morning afforded Jesus and the disciples a short mile or so walk as they headed east back into Jerusalem. One can only imagine the heaviness of His heart as He made His way back after witnessing the insane practice of money changing at His Father’s house. While on His way He couldn’t help but take notice of a nonproducing fig tree…

Good Friday

Answers to Gospel Questions 5:155; Question: “Can you please tell me why members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints do not observe Good Friday as other Christians do?”

Answer: The reason why we do not observe Good Friday should be clear enough.  Easter is taken from a pagan spring holiday, that was governed by the moon. The Roman Catholic Church connected the birth of the Savior with this pagan ceremony. As you know, Easter is governed by the moon, and this spring pagan festival was celebrated according to the moon, any time in March and the end of April.  THE RESURRECTION DATE DID NOT VARY.
