"Mystical Force"

"Because Moses brought the keys of the gathering of Israel back to the earth, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has built many communities in the western part of the United States, in the process of gathering the seed of Israel from among the gentile nations of the earth. In the early days of the Church many thousands of converts left their homes in other nations to settle in these communities. [Years ago the converts to Mormonism believed that they were to live in the "Promised Land or New Jerusalem" that Joseph Smith set up. These newly converted people flooded the shores of the United States from other countries. They believed that they were to be 'gathered in.' Mormons believe that they are the "True Jews and the True Israel."] They were not asked or persuaded to immigrate to America, but the unseen power of gathering rested upon them as they received the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands of those who have authority to bestow it.
Today, as stakes and missions are established throughout the nations of the world and temples are being built in many lands, the Saints are encouraged to remain in their homelands to help strengthen the Church among their own people.
In recent years we have seen how the hearts of the children of Judah have turned to the land of their fathers, to Palestine, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, who was the World Zionist Organization, headquartered in Jerusalem, when he was asked why the Jews were returning to the land of Israel, replied that it was because of their belief in a "mystical force." (Bartley C. Crum, Behind the Silken Curtain, New York: Simon and Schuster, Inc,. 1947.)
This "mystical force" that has turned the hearts of the Jews of every country to the land of Israel did not come from man, but came after centuries of being "sifted among the nations." Because Moses committed the keys for the gathering of Israel to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery, the spirit of gathering has been poured out upon the nations of Israel, making possible the fulfillment of the prediction of Isaiah which Moroni quoted to Joseph Smith:...." (A Marvelous Work and A Wonder, Legrand Richards, Deseret Book Company, SLC, Utah, 1976, chapter fifteen, The Gathering Of Israel, pg 219, brackets added)

Mormons to this day confess that they are successful in the gathering of Israel. The theology, as you can see, continues to carry the stench of sin by explaining that the Jews (mostly non-Judean Jews) are returning to Israel because of Joseph Smith.

About Me

My photo
Michigan, United States
I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.

Handmaidens Creed

1.I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one God without beginning or end.
2.I believe the Bible to be the Holy Inspired word of God with full truth and righteousness. No other writing is.
3.I believe that the work of the Lord comes first. Before any temporal thing or person.
4.I believe that grace is a gift and Christ gives that gift freely to all who believe.
5.I believe that the beauty of a woman is contained inside of her and not by what she looks like on the outside.
6.I believe that marriage is sacred and represents the Godhead on earth; two are one just as three are one.
7.I believe that love is more powerful than any other power. Remember, God is love.
8.I believe that tithing is not a part of God's new covenant, free will offerings are. And that doesn't mean just money.
9.I believe that the Aaronic, Levitical, and Melchizedek priesthoods are abolished and Christs Holy Priesthood whom Christ is the "Great High Priest" is eternal.
10.I believe that every believer is a priest in the "Priesthood of Believers".
11.I believe that when two are one, nobody is to separate the one.
12.I believe that Christ is the only way to heaven.
13.I believe that our bodies are temples, not man made buildings.
14.I believe that liars make fools out of others and the liar hates the fool.
15.I believe that all believers are in authority to preach the gospel.
16.I believe that the word 'organization' to describe Christs body is evil and has no place with God.
17.I believe the Americas are not the land of Zion and Christ will return to His origonal land-Israel in the Middle East.
18.I believe that God has set out correct ways of worshiping Him, not man.
19.I believe in holding to the truths of the Bible and not mans understanding of it.
20.I believe that the world is full of evil and Satan can easily gain control over the minds of those who do not profess Christ of the Bible to be their only Messiah.
21.I believe that Saints are those who know the real Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom the Bible speaks of; not the jesus of a cult.
