Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 169; “REMARKS ON PRIESTHOOD At the Conference, October, 1840…Ordinances Always the Same … Now the purpose in Himself in the winding up scene of the last dispensation is that all things pertaining to that dispensation should be conducted precisely in accordance with the preceding dispensations. … Cain also being authorized to offer sacrifice, but not offering it in righteousness, was cursed. It signifies, then, that the ordinances must be kept in the very way God has appointed; otherwise their Priesthood will prove a cursing instead of a blessing.” [emp. mine]
The Initiatory Ceremony, Pre-1990; “The ceremony script here is what took place in the temple before 1990…”
We’ve listed the reference for the redesigned temple script as an example showing how the Church is in direct violation of what Joe Smith prophesied back in 1840. To read the entire script, click on link provided above.
Our thought today is this:
It can only be assumed the Church is now cursed because they’ve changed the way temple ordinances are performed. Removing the blood oaths in 1990, placed the Church in a precarious situation in the eyes of Joe Smith’s god of Mormonism.
The reality of this nightmare is that the majority of Mormons don’t even know Smith forbade such a move in their beloved church.
We have a simple solution to all the faux temple oath cursings these dear people have encumbered themselves with.
One of my favorite bible verses is 1 Corinthians 1:18, and one of my favorite OT books happens to be Isaiah.
It’s just like my sweet Jesus to make things simple for me! The two verses below are easy to remember because of their ‘location’ in His word, and they both speak to the cleansing blood of Christ! PTL!
Do share the info with the Mormon you know, and ask if they’re aware of Smith’s dire warning about changing the rituals. Be sure to tell them of your concern for their spiritual welfare. This is nothing short of devastatingly sad.
Isaiah 1:18; “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
1 Corinthians 1:18; “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”
