Ensign, ‘The Power of Covenants,’ April 2009“…Divine covenants make strong Christians. I urge each one to qualify for and receive all the priesthood ordinances you can and then faithfully keep the promises you have made by covenant. In times of distress, let your covenants be paramount and let your obedience be exact. Then you can ask in faith, nothing wavering, according to your need, and God will answer. He will sustain you as you work and watch. In His own time and way He will stretch forth his hand to you, saying, “Here am I.” …” — D. Todd Christofferson
Isaiah 6:8 “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
The Mormon people have been tricked into believing they need to work for a nonexistent covenant. There is no such thing as a ‘priesthood ordinance’ – especially on this side of the cross! Their priesthood covenant is nothing more than a satanic priestcraft designed to bring the doctrines of demons into their lives. This has no place in the life a true believer!
Secondly, their mandate to obey a covenant not found in the Bible has no place in the covenant God made with His creation which isfound in the Bible. Proof of this is seen in the crucifixion of Christ Jesus. Galatians 2:20-21 tells us that if we work for salvation, Jesus died in vain.
Thirdly, the phrase, ‘Here am I’ is very distinct, and one with which believers are very familiar. The words represent the prophet Isaiah’s response when God asked who would go and tell the Israelites of their impending doom if they didn’t turn things around.
Furthermore, Mr. Christofferson’s arbitrary use of this phrase is another example of how the Church bypassed truth to inflate its lies. True Christians rely upon the power of God’s Holy Spirit as it says in 2 Corinthians 4:7.
Mr. Christofferson’s talk was quoted in a BYU Devotional just a couple of weeks ago we’ll be looking at tomorrow. That devotional was one of the worst things we’ve seen in quite some time, and provided further insight on the Church’s latest agenda — spiritual polygamy.
