Isaiah and the Prophets on Reconciliation Part 2

AndersEssays on the Mysteries of the Isaiah Story

Continued From Part 1 9 ¶I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. 10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. 13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him … Read More

Isaiah and the Prophets on Reconciliation Part 1

AndersEssays on the Mysteries of the Isaiah Story

This doctrine is so essential and central to the message of the prophets that they all write about it in their revelations. It’s an astonishing thing that the Jews and Christians (and especially the Mormons who claim living prophets) have all missed the significance of this theology. Christianity teaches precepts and traditions about the nature of the soul that has no foundation in scripture. Mormons are in a worse condition because they tack on Masonic temple rites and ordinances and claim their three kingdoms of glory and a hell as the final resting place of the soul, and they ignore the words of the prophets which speak of a long series of experiences for souls … Read More

The Light Shineth in Darkness; and the Darkness Comprehended it Not

AndersEssays on the Mysteries of the Isaiah Story

During the journey to obey Jesus’ commandment to search and study Isaiah’s words (3Nep 23:1), we realized the prophet was addressing a specific collection of souls staggering through this world in darkness. We called them the souls of no light. When our studies turned to the other prophet’s writings, including John’s Gospel, we recognized John addressing the same souls of no light. This was no mere coincidence and was one of the KEYS to help us identify The Gospel of John as another witness of the Isaiah Story. (See our post which explains this discovery) The scriptures tell us the earliest public effort of the Servant, who is the Son of God, will be to … Read More

The Isaiah Story

adminThe Isaiah Story

Unexpectedly it happened. It had not been anticipated, predicted, or foreseen. The light was exquisite as the best of spring days are apt to be; only more so. Much more so! The grass in the meadow was tall and thick up to my knees and the cobblestone stream at my left was clear and sang sweetly as the water flowed past me and light danced upon the undulating ripples. The stones at the bottom of the streambed spoke to me; though I couldn’t understand their words those long decades ago. The imperial and majestic trees in the distance were calling out to me as well, and the sweetness of the air was alive. Then it … Read More

Isaiah 54 Jesus Identifies Smith

AndersIsaiah

In 3Nephi 22, Jesus quotes Isaiah 54 which contains an important verse NAMING Smith and putting a final exclamation mark on these chapters about the conjurer! There is much more prophetic information in this chapter which we will not discuss here because our focus is on God and Smith whom He opposes. Witnessing the Savior point out Smith, should make everyone sit up and take note. You can see for yourself that EVERY time Isaiah uses smith or goldsmith he speaks of them in derision and contempt. Jesus and Isaiah are making it clear that Joseph Smith is the man who built the instrument for his work, the Mormon Church, with his Masonic temple ceremonies. 1 And … Read More
