One Like Unto Moses; The Deliverer

AndersOne God

By the time you are reading this paper you should have already found in the prior posts the most remarkable things about God’s nature and His work in this world that you never saw before in scripture because of the precepts taught by men. These supernal truths should fill your souls with burning bright light to fill the corners of your mind and heart with unspeakable joy. One prophet wrote of the experience described in these words: …the dark veil of unbelief was being cast away from his mind, and the light which did light up his mind, which was the light of the glory of God, which was a marvelous light of his goodness—yea, … Read More

God Will Come as a Man

AndersGod in our midst

Sometimes on this journey it’s best to sit back, get out of the way, and let the Holy Scriptures speak to the hearts and minds of the children of men. Without further comment, please see for yourselves that God will come as a man among us to work the Great and Marvelous Work. The types and shadows used to illustrate this point are as remarkable as they are simple. The Scriptures 9 For in that day, for my sake shall the Father work a work, which shall be a great and a marvelous work among them; and there shall be among them those who will not believe it, although A MAN shall declare it unto … Read More

I Will be in Your Midst

AndersGod in our midst

Why are we going to such lengths to expand upon the themes introduced with our post on Jacob 5 that God is coming down into the world to labor among men? There are several reasons that could be offered, two of which include learning to read the scriptures for what they really say without the intrusions of the traditions of men, and to give people hope in something real and substantial, in contrast to what the Christian and Mormon worlds have offered their adherents regarding the return of God to this world. The Mormons laid hold of a few verses of scripture about God coming in clouds of glory, not understanding the context of those … Read More

The Father Will Do His Own Work—Part 2

AndersThe Father

The Holy Scriptures Continued 4 O ye people of these great cities which have fallen, who are descendants of Jacob, yea, who are of the house of Israel, how oft have I gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and have nourished you. 5 And again, how oft would I have gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, yea, O ye people of the house of Israel, who have fallen; yea, O ye people of the house of Israel, ye that dwell at Jerusalem, as ye that have fallen; yea, how oft would I have gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens, and ye would not. … Read More

The Father will Do His Own Work—Part 1

AndersThe Father

Jacob 5 showed us clearly that God the Father condescends to come down into the earth to do His own work which is something the religious world is horrified to consider. They have so grossly abused, misread, and misinterpreted the simple words in scripture about God and His work that they have to go to extreme lengths to contort what the scriptures actually say about God to conform with the precepts of men mingled with scripture. That goes for every religious Christian sect of which we are aware. Especially for the Mormon Church which claims to be a restoration of the truth, yet they wrest the scriptures worse than everyone else and misrepresent the meaning … Read More

The Holy One of Israel in The Book of Mormon

AndersHoly One of Israel, Nature of God, One God

We come now to the Book of Mormon prophets Nephi and Jacob who wrote extensively about this Holy One of Israel in their prophetic writings. They share much in common with the writings of Isaiah, because they are students of the great prophet of the GMW, and they shed tremendous light on the Isaiah Story. They also shared something else profound with Isaiah: 2 And now I, Nephi, write more of the words of Isaiah, for my soul delighteth in his words. For I will liken his words unto my people, and I will send them forth unto all my children, for he verily saw my Redeemer, even as I have seen him. 3 And my brother, … Read More

The Holy One of Israel – A Beginning

AndersHoly One of Israel, Nature of God, One God

Having laid the groundwork regarding the One God in the prior posts, we can begin to understand this God more fully from within the Holy Scriptures and the writings of the prophets who KNEW this God they called “The Holy One of Israel.” It’s critical that we lay aside our misunderstandings about the nature of God given to us in the strong delusion and by the false precepts of men, and rediscover the One God of holy writ so that we may come to know His works! The prophetic writers of The Word, left us a wealth of information about the One God, and throughout the posts on this blog we’ve touched upon these matters … Read More

There is One God; There is Only One God

AndersHoly One of Israel, One God

In this paper we will conclude the presentation on the topic of the One God, beginning with these most remarkable verses which give us a deeper glimpse into the complexity and limitless nature of God by touching on three aspects of God’s character or make-up which have been so corrupted in our religious tradition as to make the reader blush with embarrassment for those Pharisees among the people who wrest the scriptures. The word of God is so simple to understand if men would leave it alone and let the scriptures speak for themselves, and STOP trying to make it conform to their precepts. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, … Read More

There is One God

AndersOne God

Now we begin our discussion regarding one of the most misunderstood concepts in all of religious dogma and doctrine. As always we will take the scriptures as our guide to see what the holy prophets and apostles have said on these matters. And that’s the best place to begin because the writers of scripture all agree on this point regardless of the discrepancies of men and their opinions. We will start with one of the most wrested passages of scripture in the Mormon canon. We invite you to set aside all of your previous notions about who and what God is (the so-called doctrine of the Godhead) and just read these words for what they … Read More
