Fruit That Will Satisfy the Conditions of Repentance; One Cannot Repent Without Knowing The Mysteries Part 2

AndersAfterword

Before proceeding with Part 2, we encourage the reader to carefully study and ponder Part 1 which explains this mystery found in scripture and sets the stage for these concluding matters. Jesus and the prophets who knew the mystery of “fruit meet for repentance,” also understood the opposite condition in which many mortals will find themselves— barren of good fruit and unrepentant. They speak of the people who reject the Word of God, deny the mysteries, harden their hearts against these sacred things, and who deserve the awful future that awaits them. The prophets remind us of the straight and narrow way leading to eternal life; they sternly warn us against touching the evil fruit … Read More

Fruit That Will Satisfy the Conditions of Repentance; One Cannot Repent Without Knowing The Mysteries Part 1

AndersAfterword

30 And now, my beloved brethren, for ye are my brethren, and ye ought to be beloved, and ye ought to bring forth works which are meet for repentance, seeing that your hearts have been grossly hardened against the word of God, and seeing that ye are a lost and a fallen people. (Alma 9) Alma understood a plain and precious concept that eludes modern readers of the Book of Mormon (BOM) because of the commandments of men in the church that deny the commandments of God recorded in scripture! The paradox and absurdity of this contradiction should be self-evident. Alma knew that repentance is directly related to one’s relationship with the Word of God … Read More

Part 3: New Records and a New Earth.

AndersThe Great and Last Day of Judgment

As these words of pleading flow from my pen onto this page, I understand at last the love and tremendous concern which flooded the hearts of the prophets as they pled with people to awaken and believe the Word of God and put off the chains of their captivity. Doing so will grant you the great gift of freedom which our Father and Mother in Heaven desire for Their children. We celebrate that freedom and liberty this day of all days when our pioneer forefathers entered these valleys of Utah as captives in a system of religion which stripped them and us of our free will because of egregious religious authority. 27 Wherefore, men are … Read More

The Judgment Bar and Judgment Seat of God 8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then … Read More

Part 1: The Sanctuary of God.

AndersThe Great and Last Day of Judgment

Every story has an end and we have arrived at the conclusion of the Isaiah Story. Through nearly a century of combined research and more than a thousand pages of writing at this blog, The Great and Marvelous Work (GMW) has been surveyed and mapped from the near horizon to the far horizon taking the scriptures as our guide to explore the undiscovered country which Jesus commanded us to search (3 Nephi 20:11-12; 23:1). Along the way, we scrutinized every belief, precept, practice, and ordinance known in our former religious tradition and jettisoned everything that did not equate with the Word of God in the Bible and Book of Mormon.  Stripping away the idols and … Read More

Awaken and Believe The Great and Marvelous Work or be Destroyed. This Prison is the End of the Line for Those Who Will Not Repent and Arise Part 2

AndersOther Pertinent Gems

As I watched the sun rise over the mountains this morning and cast its warm glow across the earth, I was reminded again that this world is not what it appears to be on the surface. The earth is not a blissful abode for mankind; it’s quite the contrary! We are born and suddenly find ourselves immersed in whatever culture we happen to live in. Life with plenty of hard-times comes at us full speed from the start. We pass from day to day and follow the cycle of seasons making our rounds through life, trying to make sense of this senseless ordeal called mortality. Mortality then becomes complicated further with economic issues, wars, disease, … Read More

5 And it came to pass that the angel spake unto me, Nephi, saying: Thou hast beheld that if the Gentiles repent it shall be well with them; and thou also knowest concerning the covenants of the Lord unto the house of Israel; and thou also hast heard that whoso repenteth not must perish. 6 Therefore, wo be unto the Gentiles if it so be that they harden their hearts against the Lamb of God. 7 For the time cometh, saith the Lamb of God, that I will work a great and a marvelous work among the children of men; a work which shall be everlasting, either on the one hand or on the other—either … Read More

But behold, your days of probation are past; ye have procrastinated the day of your salvation until it is everlastingly too late, and your destruction is made sure; yea, for ye have sought all the days of your lives for that which ye could not obtain; and ye have sought for happiness in doing iniquity, which thing is contrary to the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head. (Helaman 13:38) The annals of the Great and Marvelous work written by holy prophets make one thing abundantly clear; we MUST KNOW “the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head,” or in other words, we MUST KNOW … Read More

The Contrivance of Melchizedek Priesthood and the Fraud of Peter James and John

AndersOther Pertinent Gems

In the prior post, we established the fraud of Aaronic priesthood based on Jesus fulfilling The Law of Moses. Reading the prior post is a prerequisite to understanding this document. In this paper, we will prove the contrivance of the Melchizedek priesthood and the fraud of Joseph Smith claiming a transfer of power from Peter, James, and John as we demonstrate Smith’s ongoing proclivity to fabricate “facts” and spiritual events as revisionist history to support his kingdom building efforts. We will then expose the deception of D&C 110, which never actually occurred because Smith and Cowdery never spoke of it and the revisionist report never saw the light of day until after the Mormon theocracy … Read More
