Tip of the Day, January 22

22 January

January 22 – Everlasting burnings.  What is it?  Who goes to everlasting burnings and why?  Isaiah 33:12, 14.  “And the people shall be as the burnings of lime…the sinners in Zion are afraid; fearlfulness hath surprised the hypocrites.  Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?  Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

As a Christian I can find refuge by knowing where I’ll be after this earthly life.  There is no confusion in my mind about the meaning of everlasting burnings for me any longer.  The teachings of Joseph Smith always have a way of confusing the Mormon people.  The Bible says one thing and they’re taught to read them regardless of the contradictory teachings Smith throws their way.

God was bringing judgment against Jerusalem and they of all people saw that they were being judged by Him for their sinful lifestyles.  The Assyrian army was setting the city ablaze and few if any escaped the wrath that came barreling into their beloved refuge. The stench from the burning limestone served as an horrific reminder to the Israelites of what was soon to take place for them and should have served as notice of how awful their sinful lives must have stunk to the Lord.

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith pg. 346; “Here, then, is eternal life-to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves…from exaltation to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to dwell in everlasting burnings…”

      Dear “Mr. Packer” –

      We want to thank you for stopping by our blog and adding to our comments. Our goal here is to invite dialogue between each other so we can learn and grow. 🙂 With that being said we want to remind you and everyone else that comments on our blog that we have rules. They’re posted on our front page. There is a “G” rating for vocabulary. I can’t allow comments that are considered to be “drive-by” when you just yell out things with nothing to back up your claims or giving any indication that you’d like to engage others in a conversation that is edifying in this Christian atmosphere.
      Our ultimate goal here for Life After Ministries is to glorify Jesus and Him crucified. We want to encourage any active Mormons and those who have left who are looking for info to voice their opinions and ask for help without feeling intimidated by unsubstantiated allegations about their prophet or other leaders or to feel uncomfortable by vulgar vocabulary.
      If other comments like the one made here are done by you or others we will block your IP address from this site.
      Thank and God bless,
      Michelle Grim
