As Christians, we know that the Holy Ghost was bestowed upon the Christians on the day of Pentecost. This was around 33 AD. However, the Book of Mormon teaches that this was wrong and it happened in the times of the old covenant around 559 BC. See for yourself in the verses below. “And also, the voice of the Son came unto me, saying: He that is baptized in my name, to him will the Father give the Holy Ghost, like unto me; wherefore, follow me, and do the things which ye have seen me do. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, I know that if ye shall follow the Son, with full purpose of heart, acting no hypocrisy and no deception before God, but with real intent, repenting of your sins, witnessing unto the Father that ye are willing to take upon you the name of Christ, by baptism—yea, by following your Lord and your Savior down into the water, according to his word, behold, then shall ye receive the Holy Ghost; yea, then cometh the baptism of fire and of the Holy Ghost; and then can ye speak with the tongue of angels, and shout praises unto the Holy One of Israel. ” (2 Nephi 31:12,13)
As you can see above, Joseph Smith took the importance of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentacost and saying it happened around 559 BC Instead. Satan always does this. He loves taking away the importance of an event in the Bible. Jesus promised us that the this power come after He ascends into heaven, not before. “And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” (Luke 24:48,49) And this happened just as the Lord said. “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4) In summary, the Book of Mormon’s events are fabricated by the hand of a false prophet named Joseph Smith. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that the millions of people around the world that have a Book of Mormon in their household will destroy it. To make a huge bond fire and burn it. Thank You for teaching me that all things evil must be removed from our lives, including this book. It is such a wonderful feeling, just knowing that the things in our old life are now gone. I am speaking of things that take us away from You, make us believe in false doctrines, and so much more. Lord, You have shown me how evil the Mormon church is in general, and I am willing to expose it for what it really is. It saddens my soul just to know that millions of Mormons are already in hell because of one person named Joseph Smith. People have made him their idol and believed in his false teachings instead of trusting in Your written Words, the Bible. God, these people’s hearts are so hard-hearted. If only they knew the destruction that is ahead of them, things would be different. Wake them up from their slumber. I pray that many of them will resign from their cult and come to You for salvation. I believe in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
